North Pole Pops
1 bag of marshmallows (about 30-35 marshmallows in a bag)
1 16 oz. package of semi-sweet chocolate chips
6-8 peppermint sticks, crushed into small pieces
35 small, thin candy canes
1. Place a marshmallow on each of the candy canes. Place crushed candy cane pieces in small bowl.
2. Place chocolate in medium heat-proof glass bowl and place bowl over pot of simmering water. Make sure bowl fits snugly on pot and that bottom of bowl does not touch water inside – just rests on lip of pot. Stir chocolate constantly with rubber spatula until melted, shiny and smooth. Do NOT allow any water to get into chocolate – chocolate will seize immediately!
3. Use a spoon to pour chocolate evenly over each marshmallow. Do not dip marshmallow into chocolate. This could cause your melted chocolate in bowl to harden. Using back of spoon, spin marshmallow piece while smoothing chocolate. Make sure to cover the top of the marshmallow but leave the end where the stick enters uncovered.
4. Before chocolate hardens, dip just the tops of the covered marshmallow pieces into your bowl of crushed peppermint candies. Then place on parchment paper to set. Enjoy as is, or use as your hot chocolate stirrer.** 20% off of all Coton Colors excludes Christmas ornaments.
