I came across this awesome little tutorial today and loved the idea so much, I'm thinking of making them to package with hot chocolate and a cute mug for a Christmas gift. It's easy, delicious, and kind of adorable (if you're one who finds food adorable).
What you'll need:
Peppermint sticks or candy canes
Red food coloring
Mix melted white chocolate with a bit of red food coloring, set aside.
Take your peppermint stick (or the straight end of a candy cane) and push it through three marshmallows. Roll the marshmallows in melted dipping chocolate--or dip it using a deep mug--and lay on a sheet of wax paper. Immediately drizzle white and red chocolate on top, and top with sprinkles. Refrigerate for best results.
These would make a cheap, fast, easy gift for a teacher when paired with an oversized mug and some sweetly-packaged hot chocolate. Love!
