In a holiday dreamworld, the gumdrop-paved road is fresh with powdered sugar snow and candy cane trees grow wildly along hot chocolate rivers foamy with melted marshmallows. Break off a few festive candy canes for one of these can't-miss confections, and you can create a sweet wintergreen wonderland in your house too. Once you see these rich chocolate cookies, cupcakes, and cheesecakes all dolled up with crunchy crushed candy canes, you'll just have to add them to your holiday baking list!
