No matter how many holiday seasons go by, I never seem to get my to do list done on time. Tell me I’m not alone. Have you gotten everything done on your to do list yet? Yea me neither. I still have presents to wrap and also still a few to get! Ugh does it ever end? So let’s pause shall we and indulge in a whole bunch of tasty desserts with candy canes instead of accomplishing that to do list.
I love procrastinating.
Recently I shared with you over 20 Christmas Cookie Recipes and since that seemed to be such a big hit, I thought before Christmas is officially here, I would do one more roundup for you- but this time it would be all about the candy cane. Is there any symbol really more iconic? Ok maybe the Christmas tree, but you get where I am coming from. It’s the candy cane and in less than two weeks they will be gone again for another year! So let’s embrace all those tasty candy cane desserts out there shall we?
Now some of these candy cane desserts are from me and many of them are from some of my favorite bloggers out there. I sprinkled in all sorts of desserts- cookies, brownies, cakes, cupcakes, no bake- you name it. Enjoy 🙂
