Winter Recipe Poll Winner: Peppermint Chocolate Marshmallows

It's July :) How were your holidays? Good I hope. I finally got around to making the winning food product from our poll, and I really did do it this time unlike the fall one... whoopsies. If you were paying any attention, you may have noticed that the Three Broomstick's Butterbeer and the Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallows had tied with a vote of 4 each, and I really didn't want to make both, so I picked one. I picked the marshmallows. If you were dying to try some butterbeer and are now in hopeless dispair, I'll send you the recipe, so don't you fret on little bit. Same goes for any of the recipes. 
*Note* I actually did make the eggnog fudge for a Christmas party and it did not turn out. It was too sweet and did not taste like eggnog at all :(

Here goes nothing. 

Below is what I was trying to imitate: 

And now what actually came out:

Now obviously, mine don't look as showy or fancy, but just ask Sea.. I am no professional chef, so it's justified. I didn't feel like there needed to be any sticks in them because when the chocolate hardened it was easy enough to just pick them up and pop them right in!

If you want to know how to make them, I can tell you what the picture would since there was no written recipe. Thankfully, it's self-explanatory.

What you'll need: 
  • 12 big marshmallows
  • 3 candy canes
  • About a 1/4 bag of chocolate chips (or 3oz). 

What you'll do:
  • First melt the chocolate in bowl (I did it in the microwave, but I suppose you could also do it in a pan on the stove)
  • Crush the candy canes in a food processor (make sure you get them small enough) then place them in a bowl
  • Dip a marshmallow into the chocolate about halfway and immediately cover with candy canes
  • Place on wax paper and wait for them to harden which won't take long
  • Enjoy! 

Now for my thoughts on this creation. I honestly didn't like it that much. I think it was the candy canes that did it for me and I would have enjoyed just a plain chocolate covered marshmallow better than this embellished one! It's really easy and if you like candy canes, go for it and tell me how it turns out for you! 

Happy belated holidays!


  1. Well you definitely wouldn't want to do the Chubby Bunny Challenge with those marshmallows. (: It's hard enough with regular ones! They actually look pretty good though. Maybe try sticking them in hot cocoa?

    1. No, no you wouldn't! Ha.

      That is absolutely BRILLIANT! I am going to try that pronto.
