Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallows

December 7, 2012 by 31 Comments

I love this time of year, although I may have a different story for you in January when I have to start working out twice a day to take care of December’s fun. Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallows is another must make recipe each Christmas.  I’m a huge marshmallow fan, but after being spoiled by these, it’s hard to go back to plain.

I’m telling you this Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallows recipe deserves to be sold in a gourmet kitchen restaurant…and bonus that it’s totally easy.

Crunch the peppermints and chop the chocolate.

Melt the chocolate and then do a little dipping and double dipping until the marshmallow is topped with chocolate and peppermint.  So simple, my only friendly advice is to wait a brief moment after dipping the chocolate so it has a chance to firm a bit and hold the peppermints better.

Cover the top and use the bottom to hold…

Or add a skewer and place next to a cup of hot cocoa for a fun winter treat.
