Candy canes are a favorite Christmas and wintertime treat around my house and not just for the kids. My kids love to eat them and even craft with them. We don’t limit ourselves to just the red and white canes. The Starburst canes are our favorite and you can find them in most local big box stores. We like to make crafts, decor and gifts from candy canes for the holiday season. You can find all types of color combos for candy canes now, so you are not limited to the classic red and white. Plus if you craft with them you can save yourself a few calories. Who am I kidding? I like to stir my hot Chocolate with the candy canes.
