Culinary Adventures: Candy Cane Syrup

I tried my hand at Candy Cane Syrup today, and it kind of makes me feel like a kitchen boss. This is kind of weird, since it's actually pretty easy to do.

Start with some broken candy canes

Then make some simple syrup (2 parts sugar, 1 part water)

Throw the candy in.

Melt it.

Boil it up. (about 3 minutes)

BOOM. Syrup.

I think it's pretty rad.
See? Not too hard.

I'm feeling a little nervous, still, that it will harden too much to be usable... candy has a way of screwing me over at the last second (My mom could tell you some interesting stories about the time I tried to make Divinity). I'm still pretty happy with the results, though.

What are you cooking this Christmas?
