The Candy Cane shape that we all know and love was not how it was traditionally made. When candy canes where first made in the mid-17th century, they were just a stick of sugar. When they decided to bend the candy cane it was done all by hand! They also had to produce them locally since they could easily break and since they were very susceptible to moisture. The striped design that we know and love came around in the 20th century! If you are looking for a recipe for your Christmas in July party or for this year’s Christmas party, here is the recipe for a Candy Cane Steamer that is absolutely delicious!
