The sweetest days of the year are here!
Christmas is a time for celebrating family traditions and enjoying our favorite recipes. This Candy Cane Fluff recipe has been a part of our holiday celebrations for years, and it just wouldn’t be Christmas without it!
Candy canes are a sweet symbol of Christmas that I look forward to every year! I love peppermint mochas, peppermint bark and peppermint ice cream with bits of candy cane in it.
And candy canes are festive even when they’re not being eaten! I buy several boxes and use them in glass jars as decoration, hang them on the tree and of course use them in Candy Cane Fluff!
Here is the recipe-and there is a printable version at the end of this post if you’d like to try it.
The results are a light and creamy candy cane dessert that resembles a soft pink mousse. I like to serve it in stemmed glasses at Christmas-topped with whipped cream, a sprinkle of crushed candy and a candy cane curl for garnish!
As an optional garnish, I make meringue cookies using a pastry bag star tip and sprinkle them with crushed candy canes. Looks like a dollop of whipped cream on top of the Candy Cane Fluff!
Red and white candies and cookies are pretty on a holiday table, and make sure and save a few cookies for Santa! He might like a vanilla cupcake garnished with candy canes too.
A festive addition to a dessert table is to print little descriptive labels like this Candy Cane Sweets card, and the snowman card holder is so simple to make! Check out the easy DIY in the snowman place card holder post.
I need to add another box of candy canes to my shopping list before the season is over-it’s a long wait until their sweet red and white stripes are back on store shelves!
