David is out of town this weekend, so we will continue the Ice Cream Sundays feature next week!
Today's idea is also from Martha Stewart Living magazine.
* Dip red/white peppermint sticks or candy canes in melted white chocolate and then red or white sprinkles! So festive looking! Wrap several sticks together for a small gift or stocking stuffer.
* To make: For 50 peppermint sticks, you'll need 8 ounces of white chocolate and 1 1/2 cups of white sprinkles. Put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stir until melted. Let cool slightly. Dip peppermint sticks in chocolate (only the bottom third); spoon sprinkles over chocolate. Stand candy, coated end up, in a loaf pan filled with dried beans; refrigerate until set.
I used candy canes when I made these and then wrapped one candy cane and tied a little note to it and put it on everyone's pillow before they went to bed on Christmas Eve!
