    I broke mine up and threw them into a batch of sugar cookies. Yummy!
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Ooohhhh Good idea..I will have to try that...do you just through them in the cookie dough and mix it in, and then bake them?

    Yup, just throw them in. One box of 12 canes per batch of cookies. Didn't change the recipe or time at all. Make sure they are busted up good, smaller chunks like m&m or choc chip size. The candy will melt so use a silpat or baking paper on your cookie sheet. They freeze well.

    We make our own peppermint bark with the old mint flavored ones. Just get the candy making chocolate, melt it, mix in the candy canes (all broken up), and pour all of it onto a cookie sheet that has edges. (I usually put some wax paper down first). Put it in the fridge or freezer to harden. When done, just break it up. We usually make it around the holidays and give it as gifts.

    Well, the peppermint ones get chopped up and put in rice crispy treats. Tastes really good. I'd think those others would work, too.

    I know its been a while since this was posted...but if you have the fruity ones left use them for craft projects or as package toppers for next years gifts at Christmas time.

    A couple googly eyes & brown pipe cleaners can turn any candy cane into a reindeer.

    I've also used them as ornaments on my tree...and inevitably somebody grabs one off to eat (I had to tell one person that I had used the same candy canes for the past 4 years to decorate my tree...he assured me they still tasted fine!)lol

    You can throw the peppermint ones into brownies too! They make some delicious chocolate mint brownies!

    One year, I crushed them and sprinkled them over chocolate covered pretzels and they were a hit too!

    Crush them up & stir into hot chocolate.
