30 Uses For Leftover Candy Canes – Recipes, Crafts & Decor

Every year after Christmas is over, we always have a bunch of leftover candy canes. I love peppermint but I don’t really like just eating a candy cane so I never really know what to do with the remaining ones. I started looking up recipes, crafts and anything else I could use my candy canes for. I hope you can find something here that looks yummy or will inspire you.
