  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup candy canes finely ground I use pink/red coloured, cherry flavoured
  • ¾ cup butter
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • pinch of salt
  • 12 oz white chocolate chopped chips will work
  • 1 7oz jar marshmallow creme


  • Line 8x8 inch square baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Using a food processor, grind about 6-7 candy canes to a fine sugar consistency to equal ½ cup
  • In large mixing bowl stir together white chocolate chips and marshmallow creme. Set aside.
  • In medium heavy saucepan, add granulated sugar, candy cane sugar, butter, heavy cream and salt.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring continuously.
  • Continue to boil medium heat for 4 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and pour over white chocolate and marshmallow creme.
  • Using electric mixer with paddle attachment blend for about 1 minute until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Pour into prepared baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set. (at least 4 hours)
  • Once set, cut into small bite sized pieces. Store in refrigerator in airtight container.


I like cherry flavoured red and white candy canes. They make a beautiful pink colour, but lately can only seem to find the red/white peppermint variety. These will work just fine just with a peppermint flavour instead of cherry.
