Chocolate Dipped Candy Canes

Hot Chocolate is the drink of choice at our house this season. We drink it plain, with marshmallows, with chocolate shavings, or topped with Peppermint Whipped Cream Magic. Seeing as I love chocolate and mint together (almost as much as I love chocolate and peanut butter together), I decided to make some of these Chocolate Dipped Candy Canes. They’re fun to dip and give your hot chocolate an extra chocolatey pepperminty boost… Mmmmmmm!

Wrap these chocolate dipped candy canes up and pass them out to neighbors this holiday season. Add a packet of hot cocoa, and a cute gift topper, and you’ve got the perfect holiday present.

Melted Candy Canes

Method:

Melt some of your favorite chocolate. I used milk chocolate chips and melted them in the microwave for 1 minute at a time. Then dip the candy canes into the chocolate. I dipped them on both sides because I didn’t know which way people may like it, but I like the tops dipped and then use the stick to stir. Lay them on wax paper to cool. Now dip them into your Hot Chocolate Drink and enjoy! These are so tasty. I know you will love them.

  1. The kids and I made these as teacher gifts and packaged them with the cocoa and some giant holiday marshmallows. Thanks for the great idea – the teachers loved them.

  2. I thought of this on my on and,of course, they are all over the internet! They are not quite as easy as they sound, as the lady says. You do have to practice. It is fun eating the mistakes and I have totally learned how to unwrap candy canes properly for the first time in my life. You can also put sprinkles on them and you can also use some white chocolate or other flavor canes. You can also use fat, soft peppermint sticks and coat them with fancy Belgian dark chocolate. Be creative. This can get complex. My biggest problem is wrapping to send to away family members. A little plastic sack such as you show on here would be nice. I might have to pay a visit to Hobby Lobby or something to find this. Thank you.

  3. We made these last year. Something to dress them up even more- use white chocolate (looks *so* good on the white and red peppermint) and put red sprinkles on the chocolate while its still soft.

  4. We tried this tonight and it was a little harder than I thought. Some of the candy canes have a lot of chocolate! Then of course we broke a lot too. Hmmm. More practice is necessary. I do like how they taste even if they aren’t as pretty as yours. Thanks for another great idea.

  5. Super idea! I showed these to my 12-year-old son and he wants to make them for his newspaper customers (he’s the neighborhood paper boy) as a thank you for the Christmas tips.

    Thanks for the great ideas.

  6. These are awesome! We are doing the chocolate dipped spoons and hot chocolate with my daughters girl scout troop, this is a great project to do with that!!!

    TY TY TY !

  7. What a fun idea! Hot chocolate is a fave around here too!! It’s always exciting to find new things to put into it! I am stuck with flavored creamers in mine. It’s really yummy!! Right now I have the gingerbread creamer…it’s really good in it!!

    ~ Thanks for sharing!!!
