Chocolate Snowflake Candy Canes

Chocolate Snowflake Candy Canes - a simple and delicious holiday treat dipped in white chocolate and sprinkles, to make and gift this holiday season!

I’m so excited! It’s finally close enough to the end of November that we can start talking about Christmas. Have you started planning yet? I love Christmas so I usually start planning & brainstorming around September. I know, but it’s just too much fun. So I know I have a ton of people on my list that I give smaller gifts to. You know those gifts that say “I’m thinking about you” but don’t cost a fortune. Food gifts are perfect for that! Since I blog about food most people in my life automatically expect something food related from me as a gift anyway. Which works out great because it’s cost effective & I feel like I’m giving someone the most personal gift I can. I believe that making food for others is truly a gift from your spirit. You pour your heart & soul into your recipe with the mindset of making something someone will swoon over. It’s so special & meaningful. I think that’s why I love doing it so much. I’m giving them a piece of what it so important to me & so much a part of my life.

These Chocolate Snowflake Candy Canes are the perfect little food Christmas gift. I don’t know about you, but when I think of Christmas, candy canes definitely come to mind. But I love the old fashioned style. I grew up receiving them with a little box of candy from my favorite shop. That was something I looked forward to every year & so I try to continue that with my family & friends. I thought that taking those nostalgic treasures dressing them up a bit would make an even better gift. They look so pretty. Who wouldn’t love receiving these from a neighbor this holiday season? Just a little box of happiness!

The best part is that you can make these in bulk really quickly. I like to have the kids help me too since it’s so easy. Before we know it we have wrapped up all our gifts for all the neighbors on the street in less than 1 hour. Not bad!
