Who likes candy cane?? I do… I do.. I am seriously that person at Christmas time that buys candy canes, not to give away or hang on the tree but to stash in the cupboard and savor them. 🙂 It’s just like lollipops, I think they make a great night time treat that is low in points and as long as you don’t crunch it up in seconds they can last a long time.. So I will enjoy any baked treat over the holidays that has candy cane in it.. like these yummy and easy to make mini candy cane cookies, with a sugar cookie taste these soft and chewy cookies are exploding with candy cane flavor! Best part… 2 cookies for 1 point plus or 1 cookie for 1 smart point 🙂
