Legend has it that the classic, cane-shaped peppermint candy with which we are all familiar was invented in 1672, when a choirmaster in Cologne, Germany needed a festive way to keep children quiet and attentive during worship services. The shape and colors were said to have religious tie-ins, and thus the sticks continued to be produced this way for years. In fact, the first recipe for a straight peppermint candy stick wasn’t published until 1844! It seems that it must have taken 172 years for someone to work out how to get the crick out of the stick.
So let’s celebrate the fact that we live in a century where peppermint candies are not confined to elongated sticks, and may be crushed and sprinkled onto white chocolate-covered mini pretzels! With a delicious salty-sweet crunch enhanced by the tongue-tickling flavors of peppermint -- it’s a glorious time to be a candy-lover indeed! Perfect for the Christmas candy dish, these decadent treats are sure to be a hit at any holiday event.
