1. Decor

Candy canes can become part of your holiday decor. Hang them on your Christmas tree, set them on tables alongside other holiday decorations, make them part of wreaths, apply them to wrapped presents. Be creative!

2. Drinks

Crushed candy cane can be stirred into hot cocoa or other warm drinks. You can also use them to garnish your mugs or glasses.

3. Baked goodies

Add chopped candy cane to brownie mix or cupcake and cake batters. Sprinkle crushed candy cane on top of frosted cookies before the frosting sets.

4. Frozen treats

Stir chopped candy cane into softened dairy-free ice cream or simply use the candy cane as a festive garnish.

5. Stocking stuffers

Candy canes make great stocking stuffers -- whether for the kids or for the adults who still love the refreshing minty taste.
