If you’ve ever thought store bought, bagged marshmallows were good enough … I’m here to say you are oh-so-wrong. One bite of a homemade marshmallow and you’ll forever be changed. Really, they’re that good.
For a few weeks now I’ve had all of the ingredients to make marshmallows hanging out in my pantry but they just continued to sit and sit and sit. I’ve always been a bit intimidated by any candy making process that involves a thermometer and sticky stuff boiling. But these my friends, these are not that difficult, definitely not as difficult as I made them out to be in my head. A quick internet search led me to these Candy Cane Marshmallows from Martha Stewart and after having personally tasted them, it’s so worth a try!
Just look at how pretty these candy cane marshmallow hot cocoa dippers are …
Since it’s Christmas-time I made a batch with the red swirl to look like a candy cane but I left out the peppermint extract and replaced it with vanilla. If you’re going to using peppermint candy canes with them, you’ll get plenty of that flavor in your hot cocoa, no need to overdo it.
Foamy, gooey, warm and yummy!
As much as I wanted to take the mug back to get a sip, I thought it was just best to make my own after seeing the stink eye I got from Kaydence.
Try these, you won’t regret the effort that goes into making them!
