Hello everyone. I made these because I’ve seen chocolate dipped marshmallows on a stick in the candy stores and I wanted to make a version with a completely edible stick that holds the chocolate dipped marshmallow in a single serving size.
Ingredients I used:
1. Container of sweet stripes soft candies
2. One bag of chocolate chips
3. One bag of marshmallows
4. Chocolate dipped peppermint poles
5. Parchment paper
In addition to my ingredients I had these extras on hand:
1. Two half sheet baking pans
2. Two quart sauce pan
3. Food processor
4. Large mixing bowl
5. Small bowl
Step 1: Crush the Candy Canes
Crush Candy Canes with food processor until the pieces are course and place in a small bowl. I didn’t have an exact amount so I just processed enough to cover the amount of marshmallows that I was going to be using.
Step 2: Preparing the Marshmallows
I placed all of the marshmallows on a half sheet baking tray covered with parchment paper and than I pushed the chocolate covered end of the peppermint poles into one end of the marshmallow.
Step 3: Tempering the Chocolate
Fill a two-quart saucepan halfway with water and put it on the stovetop to simmer. Once it has come to a steady simmer place a large metal mixing bowl on the top of the simmering pan. Make sure that the bottom of the pan doesn’t touch the simmering water; if it does you can empty some of the water out.
Next pour the bag of chocolate chips into the mixing bowl on the stovetop and take your spatula to mix the slowly melting chocolate chips. One all of the chocolate has melted it can be used.
At this point you’ll need to have a set up where you will be able to dip your marshmallows, coat them in the candy cane pieces and place them on the parchment.
