Candy canes are one of those age-old symbols the Christmas season is upon us.  And who can resist those festive little red-and-white-striped beauties?

Well actually, ... me.  I can totally resist a plain old candy cane.  In fact, I have absolutely zero desire to chow down on one.  But crush one up and put it in something? -- Now you're talking!  Candy canes in stuff are candy canes I can get excited about.

Like candy canes in this deliciously creamy White Chocolate Peppermint Eggnog.

Though I do have a candy cane question.  What's happened to the good old traditional red-and-white-striped peppermint candy cane?

I was shopping the other day and needed to grab a package of candy canes for this White Chocolate Peppermint Eggnog and for some of my holiday baking.  And I have to say, I had the hardest time finding a package of "regular" candy canes!

I swear, I must have walked up and down the Christmas candy aisle three or four times, all to no avail.

Peppermint-chocolate candy canes ... check.
Cinnamon red hot candy canes ... check.
Fruity candy canes ... check.
Life Savers 5 Flavors candy canes ... check.
Sweet Tarts candy canes ... check.
Sour Patch candy canes ... check.

Traditional red-and-white-striped peppermint candy canes ... nowhere to be seen.

After much searching, I did finally find one little display of just-your-basic plain candy cane.  Who knew it would be such a shopping challenge?

So then I went home and enjoyed some of those traditional, plain candy canes in a big mug of this White Chocolate Peppermint Eggnog.

And a mug full of this holiday deliciousness was just what I needed after finishing up my shopping trip.

White Chocolate Peppermint Eggnog Topped with Whipped Cream and Crushed Candy Canes

To make this little cup of peppermint holiday heaven, simply combine some eggnog, white chocolate chips, and crushed candy canes in a saucepan.  Then heat the mixture gently until the white chocolate and candy cane pieces melt.

That's it!  That's truly all there is to preparing this fun and festive eggnog drink.  

Serve it up warm with a squirt of whipped cream and coarsely crushed candy canes on top for a fun little Christmas treat.  It's a tad bit sweet, a good bit minty, and a whole lot delicious.

To finish it up, grab a {good old traditional} candy cane, dunk it in, and a enjoy a big old minty mugful of White Chocolate Peppermint Eggnog!
