“The idea for melted candy cane frosting came as a happy accident when I was helping my friend get ready for a holiday party and at the last minute I needed a festive dessert. I threw some crushed candy canes into a bit of cream and whipped the liquid into a simple buttercream frosting that became a beautiful soft pink color with the kiss of peppermint flavor. It was a big hit at the party and cocoa roll-out cookies are the perfect match for this filling. It has quickly become one of my holiday favorites!”
