    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Only a few ingredients and so simple to make, better stock up on lots of candy canes this is so good you will be making it all year around! --- use a good quality white chocolate like Lindt or Bakers for this, and you may omit the nuts if desired :)

      Little time, big payoff. This recipe was so good. I used peppermint schnapps instead of the extract, so it could've used more mint "oomph". Even my husband thought this was excellent, and he's not a fan of sweets, so you know its good. :)

      This is the same recipe I have been using for my Christmas cookie trays. However, I have lost my copy and wanted one to add to my cookbook. I didn't want to forget to making it this year. The only things i do differently is save some of the crushed candy canes (or crush some extra) and sprinkle over the top and I also add 1 tsp of peppermint extract. Thank you so much for posting it!
