  • 2 boxes (20 count) Sable and Rosenfeld Party Cups

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ⅓ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 small candy cane, finely crushed

Special equipment: Pastry bag fitted with a star tip.


Fill a saucepan with 1-2 inches of water. Place a slightly smaller, heat-safe bowl on top of the saucepan and heat water to a simmer. Place semisweet chocolate in the heat-safe bowl, being careful to not let water get into the bowl of chocolate. Continue to simmer water and stir chocolate until chocolate is melted. Remove chocolate bowl from heat and stir in butter, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla extract. Place pan in refrigerator and refrigerate for about 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally until mixture is thick and mounds when dropped from a spoon.
