White Chocolate Candy Cane Martini

“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”

— Buddy the Elf, Elf

You don’t need to pass through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest or even traverse the sea of swirly twirly gum drop in order to enjoy this delectable, holiday-themed martini.

You do, however, need white chocolate liqueur, vanilla vodka, and Peppermint Schnapps. I know, we had you at “white chocolate”, right?

So take your time, sip this bright and cheery holiday cocktail, and who knows… you may just find your own Miracle on 34th Street and realize that It’s a Wonderful Life.

Peppermint Bark Bonus

Here’s a great recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Bark that’s eerily similar to Williams Sonoma (see this issue’s Chocolate News for more on their famous peppermint bark, as they celebrate its 20th anniversary). Click here to give it a look over at RedefinedMom.com.
