Peppermint Hot Chocolate Marshmallow Straws
Large Marshmallows (i got the extra large size, like even bigger than normal large size)
Chocolate Almond Bar (melting chocolate)
Straws (i used striped paper straws as well as coffee stir sticks)
First put your peppermints in a ziploc bag and using a hammer smash them up into bits. The smaller the bits the better because larger chunks wont adhere very well to the chocolate.
Melt the almond bark or melting chocolate, stick the straw deep down into the marshmallow (i stuck mine until i could feel it almost poking through the other side). Dip the marshmallow in the chocolate and then using a spatula smooth it out and get rid of any excess chocolate. Then using a spoon sprinkle the dipped chocolate marshmallow with your crushed up peppermints.
Let them harden on a silpat or parchment paper. (Read all about why I love my Silpat HERE) You can chill them in the fridge, but i didn’t, leaving them on the counter to firm up worked great.
Happy Hot Chocolate Season!
