If the peppermint sticks are porous, make Lemon Sticks! Just slice the top off of a cold lemon and insert the peppermint stick. Then...suck the lemon juice up through the stick. It's totally awesome. You see them at fairs and during Pimlico around here.

Kathleen, they're solid. Cool idea though.

Merstar, THANKS! That sounds like something I'm going to try.

Barbara, I like to stir hot chocolate with them too. mmmm.

I'm sort of looking for ways to use them that disguises them a bit. I mean really, its APRIL. Using candy canes for anything right now is going to raise eyebrows. I think they pretty much have to be crushed or otherwise completely disguised.

I have made a peppermint cake using a white cake mix, the crushed candy canes, You can add some peppermint extract to the batter if you want.

Ooooo! Dave I love that idea! I think I'll give it a go. What did you do for a topping? Anything? Do you think a cream cheese icing with crushed candy canes would work?

Dave, great idea!
Yes, do the cream cheese icing w/crushed candy canes. I'll be over for some later.

Thank you! I'll bring the presents and dress as santa's helper.

Have you ever had the creme de menthe brownies? They have the brownies layer, the green frosting layer and the chocolate layer on top.
Fudgy brownies topped with creme de menthe frosting (fairly thick), then topped with melted chocolate chips/butter, so it's like a candy coating when cooled?

What about the same thing, but, for the creme de mint frosting--substitute a peppermint frosting with crushed peppermint sticks in it?
