Peppermint marshmallows

Need a use for those leftover candy canes? Do you like peppermint cocoa? Try this recipe. This also makes a nice gift when combined with nice cocoa mix or packets and a cute cup.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a fabulous idea! The marshmallows and peppermint melt into the cocoa adding an extra pop of flavor. Just make sure the candy canes are crushed really fine or you may have a problem with them sticking. These would be fun on Christmas morning with the family. Or hand them out as gifts at a holiday party. So fun!


1 pkg
marshmallows, large
leftover candy canes, crushed
1 c
powdered sugar
1-2 tsp


1Crush leftover candy canes, I use my mini chopper, but a baggie, towel and hammer will work too; set aside.
2Combine the milk and powdered sugar to create a thin glaze.
3Dip the marshmallows into the glaze, roll in the crushed candy canes. Place on wax paper to dry, store in an airtight container.
4Add 1-2 to cups of hot cocoa... enjoy!
