One of my favorite holiday treats to make for friends and neighbors (and anyone passing through my kitchen!) is this recipe for Candy Cane Popcorn. I’ve shared it here before, but it bears repeating, as it’s the perfect gift to whip up and present to others in this season of gathering and joy.
I just love Mary Brooks Picken’s thoughts on Christmas. She captures the spirit of the season again and again, with just a few beautiful words. In her article Christmas Kindliness in Vintage Notions, she talks about how “Christmas, instead of extravagant giving, should be a time of loving companionship, of tender memories, and of happily sympathetic appreciation of those we hold dear as friends and loved ones.” she continues on to say that “Christmas time should be wreathed in kindliness and candled with loving tenderness.”
I love that this traditional American Holiday treat nods to the tradition of caring for others in a sweet and classic way.
And let’s just face it–gifts are fun, but wrapping them beautifully is just as fun! We have a vintage label download we are offering today so your Candy Cane Popcorn will be beautifully presented. These would be so fun on different glass canisters and mason jars!
