The first historical reference of candy canes dates back to 1670, when a choirmaster at a cathedral in Germany, created a bent version of the original white sugar sticks, to give to children during Christmas service. These bent sugar sticks represented a shepherd's stick. Try this version of white chocolate cups made with candy canes!

White Chocolate Candy Cane Cups [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Kid-Friendly Vegan


  • 4 oz Cacao Butter
  • 2/3 cup Confectioner’s Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Soy Milk Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Peppermint Extract
  • 1 Candy Cane, crushed


  1. Prepare 18-20 mini paper candy cups on a cookie sheet. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the sugar and soy milk powder and set aside. In a small saucepan, melt the cacao butter over medium-low heat – be sure to watch it closely as it will melt fast. Once melted, mix in the peppermint extract and remove from heat. Whisk in the dry ingredient mix until no lumps exist.
  2. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the melted chocolate into each candy cup and refrigerate for 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle each cup with a bit of crushed candy cane and then top with another teaspoon of melted chocolate (reheat on low for a few seconds if it has started to set up). Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes and top with more crushed candy cane and serve. Makes 18-20 candies.
