I don’t know about you but I’m not into paying $$$ for steamed almond milk with flavoring from large coffee shops when all the ingredients I need are already in my house for the holidays!
Candy canes are the quintessential Christmas candy and I always end up going peppermint crazy! I even hang them on our tree. :)
How cute would these be in small bottles as a unique homemade holiday gifts? It’s also a great way to use those extra candy canes after the holidays, so maybe a homemade Valentine’s Day gift is a better idea?
Either way you’re going to have a sweet time!
