Introduction: Chocolate Candy Cane Covered Marshmallows
These delicious and simple treats make perfect Christmas gifts for friends and family.
Step 1: Ingredients:
3 medium marshmallows
1/4 cup chocolate chips
3-4 mini candycanes (= 1 medium candycane)
NOTE: Medium size of marshmallow is most preferable, and nothing smaller, but if you choose larger marshmallows, be sure to use more chocolate chips, and lengthen microwave time.
As shown, you can use mini candycanes or one medium candycane.
It is easier to keep them in their wrapper and crush them in there, and then you can pour it from the wrapper.
Step 2: Melt Chocolate
Place chocolate in small bowl and place in microwave for about 1 minute and 40 seconds, stirring in between. The time just depends on your microwave.
Step 3: Crush Candycanes
Leaving them in their wrappers, crush them with something like the handle of the knife coarsely. Size of normal chunks that candy-cane should be crushed into are shown above in bowl. Cut the wrappers, and pour all of it into a wide bowl that is good for rolling marshmallows in.
Step 4: Cover Marshmallows With Chocolate
Place marshmallows on a paper towel or parchments paper (parchment paper works best). Using toothpicks to help holding the marshmallow without grabbing it with your hands, use a silicon scraper to spread the melted chocolate onto the marshmallows completely and evenly.
Step 5: Roll in Crushed Candycane
Roll choclate covered marshmallows in candycane before chocolate hardens. Place on a platter and cool in fridge for ten minutes before serving or putting in gift bags.
