Candy Cane idea

I saw this idea on a morning show around Christmas, (can't remember which one) and I tried it this morning with great results!
If you have leftover candy canes, grind them up in your cleaned coffee grinder. It will make a powder-like substance that flavors your coffee or tea wonderfully! I put some in my morning coffee and absolutely loved it! I don't drink tea, so I can only assume it would be as good there. But either way, it is a great way to use up all those candy canes from Christmas!

I am a fan of anything peppermint (in drinks) so I may need to try this. I am so curious how did you get your 15 seconds of fame again? Would it be wrong for me to try this just so I could do that? Is that entirely prideful? :)

Gret, comment on one of their articles, with a direct link to their site, and wait for them to notice you! Good luck!

At Sam's Club, they were selling candy cane cocoa with real ground-up pieces of candy cane in there. It made me think of your candy cane idea.

We love candy canes too and have been splitting them three ways among the boys and me. I remember stirring "Russian" tea with a candy cane when I was in college.
