Candy Cane Steamer

Christmas Eve is such an exciting, happy day.  It’s a filled with anticipation and family traditions.  After all the food is readied, and wrapping is complete, we savor a delicious soup, salad, and breads buffet that evening.  My most cherished memory is reading from Luke and our family nativity.  After all the children open one present, their new pajamas, they are snuggled into bed.   Santa and I like to slowly sip a Candy Cane Steamer.  It’s a perfect ending to a wonderful day.

Candy Cane Steamer

Adding peppermint candy cane syrup to warm milk, in a pretty glass mug, will warm your heart.  When you add a fluffy bed of whipped cream on top of the milk and drizzle more pink syrup over the cream, it’s all ready for a frosty marshmallow snowman and candy cane stick. It’s a really festive, sensational wintery treat.

For each candy cane steamer, in a medium saucepan warm 2 cups of milk, any kind of milk you like works!  Add 2 to 3 teaspoons of candy cane simple syrup.  Top with pressurized whipped cream, and drizzle with more candy cane simple syrup. To make it extra special add a candy cane stir stick and a Frosty marshmallow face!

You can easily make steamers in your microwave.  Just fill your microwave safe mug with milk and heat on high power for 1 to 2 minutes.  Add 2 to 3 teaspoons of the syrup, top with whipped cream, drizzle with more syrup and add a candy cane stir stick.  I have to admit, I’m crazy about these Wilton Snowman Cocoa Trimming Kit, just in case you missed it.  It’s such a fun presentation, a frosty little snowman will be topping our steamers all winter long!
