Peppermint Candy Cane Shake | The Hopeless Housewife


My daughter Madison loves her sweets and this shake is no exception. It’s easy enough for kids to make (with a little adult supervision), they will be so proud of themselves when they’re finished! We put ours in decorated mason jars and used candy-striped straws for extra cuteness!
