White Chocolate Candy Cane Cups
Y’all, I think I may have found my new favorite thing. Now, I am by no means a white chocolate fan, but anything with peppermint is is A OK by me. I was at work yesterday day dreaming about my new white chocolate supplies that I had received this week and the idea of a peppermint filled candy cup popped into my head – I just knew I had to give it a shot.
I’ve made a couple of different candy cups in the past, but not all of them have turned out the best. The last time I tried to do mini peanut butter chocolate cups it was an epic disaster that I couldn’t even bring myself to eat. These however, turned out perfectly the first time – and the second time immediately after the first. These would be a hit for any holiday gathering – if they make it out of the house!
The crunch of the candy cane center is the perfect foil for the creamy white chocolate and they come together so quickly that you could make them every day if you wanted (I want to!). These would make a great addition to a vegan candy spread to take to a potluck or party and I promise that people will be asking you for the recipe all night long.
If you dig peppermint and chocolate, then this candy is a no brainer. You could do these candy cups in any kind of chocolate or candy mold you like – but I like using the mini paper cupcake cups. They are inexpensive and you can get ones that are festive – they also make them much more portable and less messy.
Important debate going on in my head right now: Which is the better Christmas album – A Very Special Christmas Vol. 1 or A Special Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector? Ready – go!
