In a stunning twist on the conventional candy cane, these minty cool sticks are recognizable no matter the exact incarnation. As was common when canes were first fashioned centuries ago, they're still hand-pulled, a task made easier by a second set of hands. Get the packaging how-to for the Peppermint Icicles.
The peppermint candy is very hot initially, so be sure to work quickly wearing protective rubber gloves. For the best results, at the beginning of the pulling stage in step three (pictured, above), two people should divide the candy between them. Use any color you prefer to tint these minty sticks. The candy will keep, covered, for up to 4 days.
