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)


  1. In a large bow, cream your softened butter for 2 minutes. Add in your powdered sugar, water, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract.

  2. 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!

  3. fold in your crushed candy canes.

  4. Use as desired, serve and enjoy!
