Really cute marshmallow & peppermint stir sticks for hot chocolate or any chocolate drink. Adorable on a hot chocolate bar or any area you have set up for hot drinks.
This is all you will need - some marshmallows, peppermint sticks, white chocolate and whatever you would like to garnish with. I used a combination of red sparkling sugar and crushed peppermint.
Couple of notes - the
marshmallows will dry out pretty fast so if you are not using them
immediately either wrap with some plastic wrap or do what I did put them
in little plastic bags and just tie off, don't make a bow, makes it
easy to remove the ribbon and the plastic bag for use. Also I found it
helpful to use a Silpat mat to set them on to dry after dipping them in
the white chocolate and adding the garnish on the bottom.
some white chocolate (I used white chocolate chips) then working
quickly, dip one end of the peppermint stick into the white chocolate
and push into the center of the marshmallow. Continue until you have all
the ones you want. After they are set, melt some more white chocolate
and dip them in whatever sugar/confection you desire. Let them dry on a
Silpat mat or parchment paper. Once dry you can either remove to a
plate or put them in bags or wrap with plastic wrap.
