FACEPALM! When I see stuff like this I think, "Why didn't we think of this sooner??????" Most excellent idea. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm pinning this one.

I think sounds great. I love candy canes and I love anything peppermint. This would be great in my coffee.

I tried it - I did in food processor on pulse to grind the candy canes. I probably should have done it a little longer. I took my bigger pieces and put them on the top of the jar.

Thanks for this - it was a great quick gift. I decided that if I couldn't find candy canes I could probably do with the round mints, but didn't have to try those.

Hi Sue,

So excited that you were able to make a nice homemade gift easily! I agree, the round mints should/would work just as nicely ;) Hope your recipient enjoys! Happy holidays!
