Candy Cane Magic


{via}

The Candy Cane is the quintessential treat of Christmas. Aside from enjoying this stick of sugary goodness the traditional way, here are a few lovely variations. Personally, peppermint hot chocolate is my favorite and festive way to enjoy the traditional candy. How do you enjoy your peppermint treats? On the tree, in your drink, or smothered in chocolate?
