Every year we buy
12, 24, 48 candy canes to hang on our Christmas tree. However, what the heck should we do with them when Christmas is over?
I love peppermint as much as the next guy, but I’m not one to just sit there and munch a candy cane.
These Peppermint and Chocolate Covered Marshmallows are great for using up mini and large candy canes (or both!).
No special equipment is needed for this recipe. I crushed my candy canes using a rolling pin and a plastic baggie.
