2. Immediately, apply peppermint candies, gumdrops and old-fashioned holiday mix candies to the frosting.

3. Chill the serving glasses in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to allow the candies to harden to the frosting.

3. Add the vanilla and milk and blend for 30 to 45 seconds or until completely thick and creamy.
