Chocolate Candy Cane Marshmallows
Place candy canes in a sturdy sealed bag and crush with a rolling pin or mallet.
Place crushed candy canes in a small dish.
Place the chocolates in a small dish and melt, stirring the chocolates together
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.
Place marshmallows on a wax paper-covered baking sheet and refrigerate briefly, until the chocolate hardens.
Store in an airtight container.
Enjoy on their own or in hot cocoa.
You can serve these candy cane marshmallows on a pretty platter, or if you're giving them as a hostess gift, put them into cellophane bags and tie them up with festive ribbons like I did.
