I was out shopping today for Christmas presents and smelled the delicious aroma of a peppermint flavored mocha. It smelled amazing and reminded me of how much I loved candy canes as a little girl. They have the perfect sweet flavor to tide over my candy craving. I thought I would step it up a notch and add in my absolute love which is no other than dark chocolate! These two treats combined together are not only delicious but they are only 30 calories per decadently covered chocolate candy cane! This is like a grown ups version of a kids favorite holiday treat. This candy would also be super fun to make with your kids or friends and would make the perfect stir stick for your coffee!
Chocolate Covered Mini Candy Canes
1 bag mini candy canes 1 bag extra dark chocolate chips
Simply melt the chocolate and dip each candy cane in a couple of times to ensure each has a decent coating. Place on a parchment paper covered plate and set into the freezer until chocolate has hardened. If you are the artsy type you could also finish off each candy cane with a role in some chopped almonds for an added 15 calories per candy cane.
