This recipe calls for crushed candy canes. I wish the stores sold crushed candy canes or peppermints, this would make life so much easier. For many years I have placed the candy in plastic bags and beat them into chucks with my rolling pin.
It turns out that the sharp edges of the candy would pierce the plastic and there would be a million teeny tiny holes in the bag when you were finished, loosing candy when you pick the bag up. Am I the only person this happens to?
This time I had a genius idea, put them in your food processor or in my case ultimate chopper and crush them up that way. Why didn't I think of that sooner? It worked like a charm!
