Can you crushed candy canes using food processor?

To be honest, I prefer to crush candy canes using food processor. Its clean, less mess and zero runaway plastic bit and pieces in your dough.


If you are crushing candy canes using ziplock bag, please make sure you use a good grade ziplock bag. Inferior ziplock bag tend to fray and you will end up with bit and pieces of torn plastic in your cookies! cookies with candy canes

I do not have many recipe using candy canes yet. My only other recipe is White Chocolate Peppermint Bark
