DIY Candy Cane Simple Syrup
No need to shell out a bunch of cash for the fancy store-bought stuff! This DIY Candy Cane Simple Syrup is low-cost and SO easy to make. You’re literally just melting candy canes in hot water. Bottle up a whole bunch and gifts to friends and family this holiday season! Use it:
- in your lattes and hot chocolate
- on your pancakes
- drizzled over ice cream
- as a cocktail mixer
You can get your glass bottles (like I did) at The Dollar Store and spruce them up with these gold spouts. Use your Cricut (or Avery on your printer) to make cute candy cane labels. You could also do mini bottles of the syrup (I LOVE using these for gifting) and pair it with hot chocolate mix and homemade marshmallows. Makes for a nice neighbour or teacher gift!
- 12 regular-sized candy canes
- One cup of water
- Air-tight glass jar (preferably with a pretty spout)
- Break candy canes into small pieces
- Place all candy canes pieces into a pot with the water
- Bring to a low simmer over medium heat, stirring consistently
- Continue to stir for about another minute or until all of your candy canes have liquefied
- Remove from heat and cool completely
- Use your funnel to pour the syrup into a glass jar with a spout
