Candy Canes Make Perfect Stir Sticks

Candy Canes

Candy canes are delightful at the holidays–you can hang them on the Christmas tree, use them to decorate garland, make place cards, and of course, eat them!

For the kiddies enjoying hot cocoa, and for the grownups sipping on some eggnog, try using them as candy-coated stir sticks. Just melt chocolate (in the microwave or a double-boiler), dip the straight part of the canes in it, and then roll in sprinkles, tiny marshmallows, or even crushed candy canes.
