I read somewhere online...can't seem to find it now, please post if you know where it came from so I can give credit...that you could put leftover candy canes in the blender and blend them to a powder. This powder can be added to powdered milk along with hot water to make a warm peppermint milk. We have also added our peppermint to hot chocolate and to Sprite. Although my girls don't drink a lot of softdrinks, they thought the peppermint Sprite was the best thing they've ever drank.
I ground up all our Christmas candy canes and put the powder in a Mason jar. Anyone out there have any other ideas for our peppermint powder?
