Chocolate Coated Candycanes

I don’t usually have a massive sweet tooth but for some reason when it comes to holiday sweets and snacks I absolutely love them! For example, I wouldn’t be one to order apple crumble after a meal but if you put one of those Malteser bunnies you get at Easter in front of me, I go nuts! So, in the spirit of Christmas and being surrounded by holiday goodies every time I go to the shop I thought I’d do a little twist on an old favourite.

What you need:

  • Candycanes
  • Dark chocolate
  • Desiccated coconut

How to:

  1. In a bowl, gently melt the dark chocolate in the microwave.
  2. Once melted, dip the ends of the candy canes into the chocolate. You should coat at least 3-4″ of the candy cane.
  3. Sprinkle the desiccated coconut over the still warm chocolate.
  4. Carefully place the candycanes on a plate and put in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to set.

The desiccated coconut makes this snack look even more festive because it looks like snow – it’s like a mouthful of Christmas!  For me, the combination of peppermint, dark chocolate and coconut can’t go wrong, however, coconut isn’t necessarily everyone’s cup of tea. If you’re not the biggest coconut fan then why not try sprinkling broken candycane pieces over the chocolate and leaving it to set – just as delicious and equally as festive!

Happy Holidays!
