What you’ll need:

  • 1 child to crush candy canes (optional, but fun)
  • Large marshmallows
  • Mini candy canes
  • Melted chocolate (try Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate block)
  • Crushed candy canes

How to put it together:

  1. Melt the chocolate. This can be a tricky step. If you do it in the microwave, do so at 30-second intervals. Stir after every 30 seconds and reduce the time in subsequent heating sessions until the chocolate is melted. Alternatively, you can heat the chocolate slowly on your stove the traditional way, using a double boiler.
  2. Once the chocolate is melted, stick a candy cane into a marshmallow.
  3. Using candy cane as a grip, dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate, letting excess chocolate drip off.
  4. Roll into the crushed candy cane until coated.
  5. Set on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and allow to set.
