Dip one end of each marshmallow in the chocolate, then shake it gently to allow excess chocolate to drip off. Then press into the crushed candy canes.

    Those are SO cute, what a great idea! I love how only the top of the marshmallow is dipped in chocolate. I’d much rather have one of those marshmallows in my hot chocolate! :) Thanks so much for sharing such a creative idea, I love it.

    These are awesome! I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive these… Chocolate dipped marshmallows are best, and with the candy canes these ones are so festive.

    What a great idea! It is amazing how a few ingredients can transform a marshmallow into something so good. I imagine that just changing the colors of the toppings could make them into an any season holiday favorite.

You know the kind with the super yummy food that makes me wanna lick my computer screen while simultaneously making me feel bad about my non-existent cooking skills resulting in me forwarded pages to my mother begging that she makes something for me. Yes. One of those blogs.
