Chocolate Covered Candy Cane Marshmallows
Fluffy, chewy marshmallows, topped with a generous layer of dark chocolate and crunchy candy canes was the result of inspiration that hit in the midst of multiple holiday baking projects. While I was cutting apart a batch of marshmallows this morning; I spied a bowl of melted dark chocolate left on the counter from dipping the Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons. One thought led to another and I decided to play with that combination.
I set aside a dozen or so marshmallows, drizzled the last of the chocolate over the tops and then crushed a candy cane and sprinkled it across the chocolate. I set the finished marshmallows in the refrigerator until firm.
Once firm, I transferred these to an airtight container in the refrigerator. I have no idea how long they might have lasted that way. Within 24 hours, these marshmallows were long gone. However, I'm sure they would have been fine for several days at least.
These were every bit as delicious as they were cute! I'm making more this week for gifts, because I enjoyed them so much. Enjoy!
