What do you do when you have a sister who thinks it’s a good idea to pack her Christmas box to you with about 200 mini candy canes instead of packing peanuts?
I had to think about this for awhile since the only thing I have ever made with candy canes is peppermint bark.
How about candy cane cupcakes?
Start out with the basic cupcake recipe: https://glutenfreealaska.com/snowmen-cupcakes/
Take your candy canes and put them in your coffee grinder (A clean coffee grinder) and grind them almost to a powder. This can then be sprinkled on top of cupcakes with a candy on top for decoration.
*you can add peppermint essential oil to your cupcake batter for a more pepperminty cupcake.
