No Starbucks: Homemade Candy Cane Coffee

If you’re anything like me, you have bowls of mini candy canes all around your house post-Christmas. Also, like most people, you probably drink coffee in the morning. I present to you: How to get Diabetes while Drinking Coffee that tastes Delicious!


  • 1 mini candy cane (these can be bought in bulk at stores like Bulk Barn or in bags/boxes at Wal-Mart around Christmas time)
  • 1o liquid Ounces of your favorite dark or medium roast coffee
  • Cream or milk
  • 1 spoon


  1. Make a hot 10 oz. cup of coffee. Don’t use instant–that’s nasty!
  2. Unwrap candy cane and put into the cup of coffee.
  3. Carefully stir the coffee and candy cane concoction until the candy cane is all melted.
  4. Add approximately two Tablespoons of cream or milk to the coffee. Stir the coffee until the cream/milk is all mixed in.
  5. Enjoy drinking your chic coffee from your reusable mug, smugly grinning at your co-workers who go to Tim Horton’s and Starbucks. ¬†Well aren’t you fancy?
