I’m resharing this post from a few years ago because it’s such a handy after-the-holidays idea if you happen to have leftover candy canes.

Good Taste: leftover candy canes {peppermint sugar cubes}


Do you have leftover candy canes from the holidays?


With all the delicious homemade treats and goodies the candy canes rarely get eaten. I usually end up throwing them away after Christmas. 


I decided to put them to use this year and make peppermint sugar. Then I remembered that Vanessa over at Nifty Thrifty Things made some cute sugar cubes awhile back and decided to make the peppermint sugar into sugar cubes.


Blog Peppermint Sugar
Here’s how to make peppermint sugar or peppermint sugar cubes.

Take about {6} candy canes and pulse them in your food processor until they are ground up. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and pulse until blended with the candy canes. Stop here if you just want peppermint sugar. 

Since I was making sugar cubes, I removed the larger chunks of peppermint. Drizzle a teaspoon of water into the mixture and blend together. Add drops of water until the mixture is moist – too moist and the sugar will dissolve. 

Press the moistened sugar into candy molds or small ice cube trays. Tip: I used wax paper to press the sugar into the mold since it’s so sticky. Let the cubes dry overnight and remove them from the molds. 


I made a variety of shapes. The hearts would be fun for Valentines Day.


I had some leftover peppermint sugar and made these cute marshmallow kabob stir sticks for hot chocolate. Use a little of drizzle of tube frosting and roll the kabob in the sugar mixture. 


Add a cube to your favorite hot beverage and enjoy!
