chocolate dipped candy canes

I decided to pass on the cookies this year and make something different. These were easier than I thought they would be to make and I was able to pick up all the supplies at my local grocery store. They taste good and look great. The second picture doesn't due them justice (I was in a hurry when I took that photo).
  1. peppermint candy canes (buy an extra box because they break easily)
  2. 1-2 bags of chocolate chips
  3. 1 bag of white chocolate chips
  4. sprinkles if desired
  5. red ribbon
  6. plastic sandwich bags that don't zip
  7. wax paper


  1. unwrap all the candy canes and place them on the wax paper so that you allow enough space for them once they are dipped
  2. melt chocolate chips in microwave in a tall glass.
  3. dip the candy cane and place it on the wax paper to dry
  4. while drying heat up the white chocolate chips (you don't need much)
  5. use a spoon or butter knife and dip it in the melted while chocolate and drizzle over the chocolate dipped candy canes
  6. add sprinkles
  7. when dry I put 2-4 in a bag and folded the folded (sandwich part) of the bag over the bottom of the candy canes so that they were completely covered
  8. tie the bow and you are done

they store best in the fridge until you eat them
