6 Best Candy Cane Recipes

What do all these amazing looking holiday treats have in common? They all have candy canes somewhere in their recipe. Most also have chocolate in the recipe –  it’s a natural flavor combo!  I included the candy cane cookie recipe because it’s my husband’s favorite holiday cookie and one I’ve never been able to make as well as his memory of his mom’s – I keep trying though!

What are your holiday baking traditions? Do you make the same recipes year after year or do you try something new every year? I’m a mix of both. We always make the same sugar cookie recipe but the rest is up for grabs.
