Candy canes will be hitting rock-bottom prices in the next few weeks. Follow this recipe to whip up a festive treat using all those inexpensive or even FREE candy canes. These shakes are so delicious, and can be made either with or without alcohol. To make it extra special, rim the glass with crushed candy canes!
Candy Cane Cocktails:
To rim your glass, first dip the rim in water, then in crushed candy canes.
In a blender, mix together:
*2 c. vanilla ice cream
*1oz (2 Tbsp) Peppermint Schnapps
*1oz (2 Tbsp) Creme de Cacao
*1/3 c. milk (or more if you want it thinner)
*2 to 3 mini candy canes (or one regular size), broken into smaller pieces
To make Candy Cane Milkshakes (non-alcoholic), substitute 1/4 c. milk for the Schnapps and Creme de Cacao and add 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract. Each recipe makes 2 servings.
That’s it! So easy, right? And so yummy! As you can see, we enjoyed these milkshakes the other day while decorating our Christmas tree :)
