Candy canes aren’t just for sucking… to give one fresh breath in a pinch before meeting the (future or present) in-laws and/or greeting the folks at church.

Have your cake and candy canes… Eat them too!

Take an angel food cake….”frost” it with whipped cream and top it with crushed candy canes. YUMMY! (And, a way to impress a few of your family members at the holiday meal without a lot of effort…. but don’t tell them that!)

Another idea…

Sprinkle your crushed candy canes like it was “fairy dust” on goodies like cookies and brownies… making your favorites more festive.

…yet another idea…

Candy Cane Ice Cream….fast and easy!

If you’re late in getting to the grocery store to grab the “Special Edition” peppermint ice cream, no worries. Crush some candy cane “dust” to top a scoop (or two) of  vanilla ice cream…. or mix it up with chocolate ice cream.
