It has been sort of an obsession already for years during the holiday season....Candy Canes! I just love Candy Canes!!I collect them in all sorts and shapes, because no Candy Cane is the same.
Unwrapping them can be a little bit of a hassle. I hate it when they break into a few pieces, trying to remove the plastic. Not wanting to waste any of the broken pieces I make sprinkles of them. And besides tasting yummie, they look gorgeous as well!
Just put your broken Candy Cane(s) in the food processor and cut them into little pieces. Don't overblend it, because then you will end up with "sugar" and you want to have the structure and colours ofcours of the gorgeous Candy Canes.
Don't make more then you need, you can't store the sprinkles really well, they get sticky.
Use your sprinkles on your Cupcakes, cookies, cakes or like I did on macarons.
This is already the last post of the year; Wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy and Blessed 2012. Filled with good times spend with your loved ones and lot's of sweetness!
Thank you for stopping by the blog this past year, looking forward to inspiring you in 2012!
