Use Up Those Leftover Candy Canes

If you have a few candy canes; peppermint or any other flavor that are collecting dust after the holidays here's a light, crunchy candy you can make(it uses up leftover almond bark, too)

Peppermint Crunch

Melt leftover almond bark or white chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave. Keep stirring until smooth. Add crushed candy canes(my food processor here is a ziplock bag and a wooden rolling pin!)Then, add several cups of Rice Krispie-type cereal until coated and chocolate is used up in the bowl. This is not exact and has no measurements-we're using up Christmas baking leftovers! Finally, drop by tablespoonsful onto waxed paper. Store in tin can lined with waxed paper. Keeps for a good while. If you have candy canes that are in the many flavors that are available, they would be ok, too)

  1. Well, I can personally attest to any recipe Marcia gives out. I have trusted her for years as a primary source of childrearing advice, recipes, housekeeping advice, and excellent friendship. We've only known each other since 1979. She's the old far. She's raised an excellent husband and three primo sons. She is generous from the heart, sharing love, ideas, thoughts, books, and thankfully, food! Love your blog, Julie
