Can you believe Christmas is a week away? A week! Have you made your list and checked it twice? Or, are you still struggling with what exactly to get some of those people on your list? If you have some of those people that are difficult to by for turn to food. Everyone LOVES food, and the gift of a homemade good and treats mean so much since you have to take the time and put forth the effort to make them.
I have an incredibly easy idea to show you today, and I'm so excited for you to check it out. White chocolate, peppermint, marshmallow pops. These little treats are no-bake and the perfect option for a quick, homemade gift or party favors to give your Christmas party guests.
These pops are cute, clever and so delicious. To me, peppermints scream Christmas and they add the perfect pop of color and flavor to these fluffy, white marshmallows and creamy, white chocolate.
White Chocolate, Peppermint, Marshmallow Pops
1 Dozen mini candy canes
1 Dozen jumbo marshmallows
1 1/2 Cups white chocolate, roughly chopped
1/4 Cup finely crushed peppermint pieces
Line a work surface with was or parchment paper.
Place one marshmallow on the straight part of each candy cane and set aside.
Place white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 20 second intervals, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. Remove from microwave and stir vigorously for about 10 seconds. Dip marshmallows in the melted chocolate and bring the chocolate up to cover the sides of the marshmallow. Sprinkle with peppermint pieces and place on the wax paper. Repeat process until all the marshmallows are covered.
Once the chocolate is set, place in an airtight container or wrap in cellophane bags and tie with ribbon.
