Have you gone down the candy aisle or shopped at one of Ralph Lauren’s daughter’s candy stores?
Candy canes are having a major moment right now. They come in so many hues and are so fun when used in a variety of delicious and decorative ways.
They come in so many colors and styles these days. I love to serve them to guests with milk, hot cocoa and crush them and sprinkle on top of cheesecake, cupcakes and more. I also enjoy serving my clients Candy Cane Lane hot Tea with a tiny candy cane hanging from inside the cup.
They seem to make people of all ages smile around this time of year especially.
One of my fave ways to keep it fun at my makeup studio is by making some special clients a fresh home-made lip treat. Peppermint candy canes work well and taste refreshing. But I am also over the moon with the other flavors and colors available today.
All you need for my recipe is…
1 fresh jar of organic coconut oil (not used from your kitchen pantry)
A candy cane of your choice.
Using a kitchen mallot I crush the canes into tiny pieces but a few mini chunks work well and are visually appealing.
I then place a soup spoon (or fill with a 1/4 cup) of the coconut oil and place it in a microwave-safe small bowl. The amount of coconut oil depends on how much you want to make)
I sprinkle in a few pieces of the crushed candy cane.
I microwave for 50 seconds or less. I eyeball it. (Yes, you can do this on the stovetop but I like it this way too)
IF you want to have a peppermint kick add a dash of food-grade peppermint oil.
Next, I take this mixture out of the microwave, stir a bit and let it cool very quickly and then place some of it in a small container. You will have leftovers depending on the size jar you use.
What you will have is a cool to the tongue and refreshing lipgloss or lip balm that is not only fun to make but this recipe is so EASY to do.
The shelf life isn’t months but more like a week or so but the feeling on dry winter lips and skin-softening will make you want to use it daily! Treat yourselfor someone else this holiday season and keep those lips soft and kissable this cold winter!
Sometimes the best gifts are home-made and made with love!!! Don’t you agree?
IF you haven’t already get it done. It is time to really decorate for Halloween 🎃 in your business and or home. Every day is a reason to celebrate!
This D.I.Y. recipe looks not only fun to make but it also makes me so 😋 happy. They say we eat with our eyes first and I do believe our clients eyes and mouth are going to LOVE this. I think we will add this treat alongside our Witches Brew Cauldron Punch a potion for anti-aging this will also be a hit!
I also get a kick out of serving a REALTrick or Treat bag. 👻 I love old school ways they did back in the day. We put a few free samples of some our new and cionicbeauty and skin care products. So every one leaves with something.
I’ve never made Candy Bark before but I sure am going to try. I think the friends,family and children will love it too!
I’ve made some quick and easy candy corn treats before, like Candy Corn “Pay Day” Mix, Candy Corn MM’s Crispy Treats, and Candy Corn Trail Mix. Here’s another super-easy candy corn recipe–Candy Corn Bark! Along with the candy corn, this bark also has mini M&M’s, pretzel twists, and dried cranberries in it. It’s a yummy, simple treat to […]
