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.

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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

  3. Dip the marshmallows into the glaze.
  4. Roll in the crushed candy canes.
  5. Place on wax paper to dry. Store in an airtight container.
