My much older sister is the undisputed baker of the family… people pay her actual money to bake cakes! Me? Not so much. To our mother’s chagrin, I’ve never once made a pie crust.
I’m a cook, not a baker.
Though the kids and I did recently bake Great Grandma Schafer’s famous Green Tree Cookies, the process was merely a means to a sugary-sweet end. This might have something to do it…
Still, I love sweets. And I love our sweet neighbors. And, along with the kids’ selfless Awanas teachers, our sweet neighbors deserve a little something sweet for being so darned sweet.
Behold, all you non-bakers: The easiest Christmas treat in the history of ever…
Step 1: Unwrap plain, store-bought candy canes and pulverize to death– either in a ziploc with a rolling pin, or a blender/food processor.
Step 2: Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler (or simply a metal bowl sitting atop a sauce pan of simmering water, like m’self).
Step 3: Stir crushed candy cane into melted white chocolate.
Step 4: Pour onto wax paper and spread to desired thickness.
Step 5: Let cool, then break apart and package in cute containers.
