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.
