Peppermint Marshmallow Dips for Hot Chocolate

Rose Bakes found the perfect cocoa accoutrement with her Peppermint Marshmallow Dips for Hot Chocolate.  Thankfully, she has shared this treat with us all!

 

With kids home on Christmas break, and snow falling from the sky, we couldn’t wait to test-run these treats!

Reviewer #1 – Amanda

Mission: Keep my tots busy while making a sweet treat to gift during the holidays.

 

 

Details:

  • Happy TasterI used Chocolate Mint Candy Canes because we have a chocolate addiction in this house. Not necessary, but a major perk as it added to the chocolate flavor of our cocoa.
  • We also used some round sprinkles that were multi-colored just for something different. They were a bit messy but the look was pretty.

Tips & Tricks Learned:

I did this little project with my kiddos so I made sure we had everything lined up and ready roll before melting the chocolate. They stuck the straws into the marshmallows and even dipped them all on their own. That just shows you how easy this is and it really did make for a great project on a cold winters day.

Amanda - Marshmallows 1

Pros:

Easy and most things were on hand. I happen to keep those little straws in my party supply drawer so we were stocked and ready!

Cons:

None unless you have an aversion to chocolate and messes. There were a lot of both since it was an “assisted” project.

Conclusion:

I think this would be fun for Valentine’s Day too and even Easter. It doesn’t warm up in my neck of the woods until very late spring so we indulge in cocoa through a lot of holidays!

 

 

Reviewer #2 – Katie

Mission: Give your hot chocolate, in the words of Elle Woods “a little something extra.”

 

 

Details:

  • Grab a bag of marshmallows, coffee stirrers, chocolate chips, lay a sheet of wax paper over a platter, melt your chocolate chips and get to dippin!

Tips & Tricks Learned:

I always seem to burn chocolate if I try to melt it in the microwave so I decided to use a mini crockpot: my Little Dipper was perfect for this task!

Katie - Marshmallows 1

Pros:

Quick, simple and oh so festive.

Cons:

None…it involves chocolate, how could there be a con??

Katie - Marshmallows 2

Conclusion:

A quick, simple and oh so festive treat!

 

 

Reviewer #3 – Sarah

Mission: I LOVE me some marshmallows…seriously, I have a fixation with Peeps! So, let’s just say I had no problem trying these out!

 

Details:

  • Finding the candy canes was the hardest part for me – it wasn’t quite the holiday season yet, so they weren’t in many places. I ended up snagging them at Target, along with all the other ingredients.
  • I opted for dark chocolate chips – which I LOVE and I felt it made this a bit more “grown-up”.
  • After finishing these up, my kiddos and I also made homemade hot chocolate – such a great winter treat! These two things together were so nummy, they gave me warm fuzzies.

Tips & Tricks Learned:

If candy canes are no where to be found – you can always use the peppermint hard candies as a replacement!

Use a Ziploc baggy and a rolling pin to crush your candy canes – was kind of messy, but easy to do.

Sarah - Marshmallows 1

Pros:

Quick, easy, cheap and delicious in hot chocolate or on their own. My kids absolutely loved them!

And, if you have time to package them up cute, an awesome present!

Cons:

Just a bit messy, but anything in the kitchen is.

You may get a bit of candy cane stuck in your teeth!

Sarah - Marshmallows 2

Conclusion:

Awesome!
