Sweet Candy Cane Sauce...

Pin It Now!
15 minutes.
15 minutes and 3 ingredients.
That is all it takes to make this nifty little sauce!
Doesn't that make you smile? No long list of ingredients or hours of time.
Anyone can make this wonderful little gift for those who love candy canes.
And I don't know about you...but I love peppermint... it's one of my favourite Christmas flavours.
 
 Are you ready for how easy this is?
 
Sweet Candy Cane Sauce
{Makes approx. 3 cups of sauce}
Ingredients
1 jar {7 oz.}marshmallow creme
1.5 cups of heavy whipping cream
1.5 cups of crushed candy canes
 
Directions:
 
1. In medium sauce pan, add marshmallow creme, whipping cream and crushed candy canes.
 
2. Heat over medium heat until marshmallow creme and candy canes are melted and mixture is smooth.
 
3. Pour sauce into jars and refrigerate.
 
Helpful Hint: An easy way to crush candy canes is in the blender on the ice crush setting. Also, you can add a little red food colouring to make the sauce look more pink.

 
 
Now you have a wonderful sauce that is terrific over ice cream and brownies. Or it is great for dunking Oreo cookies for a special Christmas treat. It could also be added to hot chocolate, or even poured over waffles with strawberries and whipped cream for a special Christmas breakfast. Yummy!
 


Sweet Candy Cane Sauce looks lovely packaged in mason jars with a ribbon and a small tag and candy cane.
 
I think this sauce would make such a great little gift for kids, or a family gift with some brownies or Oreo cookies!
 
Have you started any 'gifts from the kitchen' projects?
I would love to hear what you are making!
