Beat softened butter with egg yolks until they reach a creamy texture.
Slowly mix in powdered sugar until you get a smooth texture.
In small parts, add flour to the dough. Whisk on slow just until the flour is fully mixed in.
The dough should be smooth and not crumbly. Divide the dough into two parts. Add color to each part and work the dough to combine it together.
Wrap the dough and let it rest for at least an hour. Use a tablespoon to scoop out dollops of dough.
Roll out each piece into a 4-inch string. Twist them together while bending one end to form a candy cane.
Bake at 350 °F for about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool for about 10 minutes before removing them from the baking sheet.
