The weather here has been down right FREEZING! I know I live in Canada, and I know it’s winter (well almost) but -30C is ridiculous! There’s a wind chill to boot as well. For the last couple of years, due to Paul’s “encouragement” I’ve tried to embrace winter. It hasn’t worked. Yet. I’m trying again this year, and decided to buy a down jacket, and adult snow pants (do you know they make those things without overalls now?!) So with my down jacket, and Ugg boots (no snowpants though . . . I’m saving those for ice fishing) we left the house yesterday and went for a walk. For 20 minutes. It was all we could handle . . . well, it was all I could handle. I’m sure Paul could have gone for much longer as I’m a wimp. My jacket kept me super warm and I enjoyed my new purchase until my face froze and my legs froze and I had those to complain about. Complaining is what I do best after all.
After our outside jaunt, I was desperate to be warmed up, and a warm cup of hot chocolate was in order. These candy cane marshmallow pops are super quick to assemble, and add delightful tastes to your warm cup of hot chocolate! They would also be delicious in a cup of coffee.
Candy Cane Marshmallow Pops
mini candy canes
crushed candy canes
Using a toothpick, insert it into the center of the top of the marshmallow to make a guide hole for the candy cane. Take the mini candy cane and push it into the marshmallow about 3/4 of the way into the marshmallow. Melt the dark chocolate using either the microwave or a double boiler. Dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate about 1/2 way up the marshmallow and roll/sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
I hope you enjoyed this easy no bake recipe! Stay warm!
