This fun and simple treat is the perfect thing to dip in a mug full of Hot Cocoa! Find our how to make your own Candy Cane Marshmallow Pop here.
I love the Peppermint flavor of a Candy Cane so during the holidays I try to use them as often as I can. The other thing I drink a lot during this month is Hot Cocoa! I try to keep a stock of small and simple treats that I can bring out for last minute gatherings at my house. This simple recipe worked great for me this week and used only a few ingredients that can be stored in your pantry for a long time.
Candy Cane Marshmallow Pop
Mini Candy Canes
White Candy Melts or Vanilla Almond Bark
Crush several Candy Canes to a fine texture, almost a dust. If the pieces are too big the marshmallows are hard to eat, found that out the hard way.
Insert the Candy Canes into the flat end of the Marshmallows.
In a bowl melt the Candy Melts or Almond Bark according to package directions.
Dip or coat the Marshmallows with a spoon. You don’t need to cover the entire Marshmallow, only about 2/3-3/4 of the way up the side.
Roll the Marshmallow along the inner edge of the bowl to remove excess coating. If you have too much the crushed Candy Cane will slide off of the Marshmallow.
Holding the Marshmallow over the bowl with the crushed Candy Cane, sprinkle and rotate to cover the coated part of the Marshmallow.
Place on a piece of wax or parchment paper and let set up.
Serve or store in an airtight container.
