Candy cane Buttercream Frosting
With the Holidays right around the corner, it’s a good idea to have at least one holiday recipe… well… in your corner. (Haha hilarious right?!). Anyway, this candy cane buttercream frosting is always a show stopper, guaranteed to pair amazingly with almost anything you choose! Personally, I highly recommend trying this recipe with chocolate cake, brownies, or sugar cookies, but the choice is yours! Happy baking!!
2 crushed candy canes
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1/4 cup water
Red food coloring (optional)
In a large bow, cream your softened butter for 2 minutes. Add in your powdered sugar, water, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract.
Starting off at a low speed, mix until just combined. Turn mixer up to high speed and mix for 2-3 minutes, this is to get the fluffiest icing possible!
fold in your crushed candy canes.
Use as desired, serve and enjoy!
