30 Uses For Candy Canes – Food, Crafts & Decor

Every year after Christmas is over, we always have a bunch of candy canes left over.  I love peppermint but I don’t really like just eating a candy cane so I never really know what to do with the remaining ones.  I started looking up recipes, crafts and anything else I could use my candy canes for.  I hope you can find something here that looks yummy or will inspire you.  (Click on the name of the item to be taken to the site where the recipe/craft/idea came from)
