Peppermint, Chocolate and Marshmallows …

 Peppermint S’mores

and Peppermint Marshmallow Pops

Are you done with all your holiday baking?  I’m not … I am still baking, melting, mixing, etc.

This is a quick and easy treat.  I am going to pack up about six pops in a cellophane bag and use them as little gifts.  I will probably do the same with the s’mores.

This is what you will need …

  • Peppermint Mallows (or substitute regular marshmallows)
  • Graham crackers
  • Candy canes (or crushed peppermint candies)
  • Melted white and dark chocolate
  • Lollipop sticks

This is how I crush my peppermint.  I buy small candy canes and use the smooth side of my meat tenderizer to “gently” smash them.  Then I open the end of the little bag and pour the candy out …

To make the s’mores …

Place a marshmallow on a graham cracker and microwave for about 10 seconds.  (I did 2 at a time for 15 seconds … remember all microwaves vary)  This will melt the marshmallow enough so that it will stick to the graham cracker, and will puff up the marshmallow …

Dip it in melted chocolate, lay on a wax or parchment paper lined baking sheet and sprinkle with crushed peppermint.  Pop in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to harden the chocolate up …

I told you this was fast and easy :)

Now for the pops …

Put sticks in the marshmallows and dip in melted chocolate … half-way or all the way.  Lay on wax or parchment paper … sprinkle with peppermint or sprinkles … or leave plain (so you can double dip).  Pop in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to harden up …

This is one time that it is not a “party foul” to double dip.  So dip the plain ones half-way in another color or chocolate and sprinkle with peppermint or sprinkles …

Easy peasy !!!

I appreciate your comments …
