Hot chocolate is a favorite at our house, and pretty much anything related to it! These darling candy cane marshmallow dippers are so quick and easy to make. They’re so fun and festive, and who can resist peppermint and chocolate?
I like to set them out next to a batch of Crockpot Hot Chocolate, which is my family’s favorite all through the holidays and winter months. It’s also perfect for serving at a Hot Chocolate Party, packaging up as Christmas party favors, or putting on a Christmas treat plate for neighbor gifts. They’ll look so cute set out on a serving table or area for a party–even a sweet charcuterie board! So many options, and best of all, they literally take minutes to make!
You’ll love how fast and easy they are! You just need three ingredients…
- Large marshmallows
- Chocolate chips
- Mini candy canes
You can use regular-sized candy canes to crush for rolling, if you have them on hand.
- Glass bowl (or microwave-safe bowl)
- Wax paper
Melt the chocolate chips in a glass bowl (30 second increments) in the microwave until smooth. Unwrap as mini candy canes as you need to not only dip in chocolate, but also enough to roll the dipped marshmallows in.
Once you’re prepped (and it only takes a few minutes), then you’re ready to start. Stick a candy cane in the middle of each marshmallow, dip in chocolate, then roll in the crushed peppermint.
Set on wax paper to harden.
TIP: These are perfect for little helpers! Kids are great at unwrapping candy canes, dipping, and rolling.
Place them in an airtight container and keep at room temperature. Keep for 3-5 days.
Either milk or dark–it’s your preference! You can even use white chocolate if you like.
