Blogmas Day 12: Candy Cane Marshmallow Pops

13 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS!
Oh my.

Today for the first time I am feeling super festive. After a week of feeling unwell and in bed or on the sofa, I am finally feeling better. Its true what they say, rest is best. 

Today's Blogmas post is a festive foody one. So enjoy. 

So to make Candycane Marshmallow Pops you will need...

Marshmallows
Candycanes
Chocolate

Once you have all of your ingredients now its time for the fun part. 

1. Take your bar of chocolate and break it up into lots of little pieces. Now if you saw my Hot Chocolate Spoons post you will know that in all cases when it comes to baking you always need to try the chocolate or go for the policy of one for the bowl one for me. :)


2. Next you will need to heat up some water in a pan and place the glass bowl of chocolate on top of the pan and melt the chocolate. 
Again, once the chocolate has melted make sure you do a taste test. It needs to be perfect doesn't it.



3. While your chocolate is cooling down a little, take your candy canes and break them in half. 



4. With the bottom part of the candycanes or any broken bits from the pack place it on some tin foil and crush away. I don't have a rolling pin so used a pan. It did the job. 




5. Now its time to grab the marshmallows and pop half of it into the chocolate. 



6. After you had dipped the chocolate in the marshmallow you need to cover the chocolate part in candy cane pieces. Once you have pop them in the fridge for 15 minutes or so to set.



7. At this point eat the rest of the marshmallow and melted chocolate. :)

8. One they have set you will need to turn them over so the chocolate is facing down. Its now time to get the other half of the candy cane. When it comes to putting the candy canes into the marshmallow I found it easier to use a sharp knife to cut a hole first. 


9. Now its time to make a yummy hot chocolate. 


10. The thing I love is that you can hook the candy cane over the side of the cup and let the chocolate and marshmallow melt in the drink. 
So good. 


Voila, so they you have it. Some very easy Candy Cane Marshmallow Pops.

Let me know if you try it out. 
Hope you are having an amazing weekend. 
See you tomorrow.
