How to put candy canes on rim of glasses
Place a little bit of corn syrup in a shallow dish. Place crushed candy canes in another shallow dish.

Dip the rim of each glass in a little bit of corn syrup, allowing the excess to drip off before you set the cup upright. Let the corn syrup sit for a 2-3 minutes then dip each rim into the crushed candy canes. Let them set before adding the mousse.

How to assemble the glasses
Pipe the mousse in the glasses, alternating between the chocolate mousse and the peppermint mousse. Make 3 or 4 layers.

Place the glasses in the refrigerator to set for 1 hour.

Serve and enjoy.
