Oh yes, they really are just as delicious as they sound! As I just looked into the pantry and discovered I still have a whole box of candy canes left over from this experiment (and contemplated what else I would need to make some more), but then I thought it would be a better idea to share some more Christmas memories first!
One of the things I love most about working now is that I get to talk to and meet so many different people and share time and ideas with them. Now, not having to work Christmas Eve I decided I would make something yummy to bring into work on the 23rd of December to share with everyone. I wanted to find something that was pretty that everyone could eat. I found this recipe for Candy Cane Chocolate Truffle Meringues. Suitably holiday-ish and beautiful. I had to try them!
They came out better than I ever could have thought!
*If I can give one big tip though, if you are going to try this recipe go right to the blender to crush the candy canes! I tried crushing them with the bottom of a cup and processing in a food processor. Nothing worked as well as the blender!*
Unfortunately, there were not many people at work on the 23rd. Only me and my supervisor in our department and the neighboring departments were practically barren as well! Only 4 of my two dozen meringues were eaten. I was slightly disappointed… but my live-in meringue tester assured me that he was just as happy to have yummy meringues to munch on all holiday vacation!
