Are you still wondering what to do with all the leftover candy canes from Christmas? Do you keep passing by 90% clearance sales from Christmas? I say yes to both! Here is a beautiful peppermint syrup made from those canes to give to your Valentine this year. When cooked down, the candies make this beautifully vibrant hot pink syrup that is awesome in coffees, hot cocoas, and dessert recipes. No one will think this delicacy has anything to do with the holidays. Enjoy!
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 1 jar
What do you use this Syrup for? Just curious.
great idea for left over candy canes
I put a teaspoon in my coffee or in my hot chocolate. You can add some in brownie mixes for a lovely peppermint dessert. It's very vibrant and lovely :)
