Peppermint bark and Marshmallow pops

Well, here it is just like I promised.....peppermint bark and marshmallow pops. Jake and I worked on these yummy treats for our church Christmas bazaar. They turned out great and looked pretty cute too. What doesn't look good in cellophane and ribbon? We spent the weekend decorating and hanging around the house, we have not had one of those kind of weekends in so long....decorating, cooking, shopping, movie watching, and my parents came out for my Dad's Birthday dinner. Overall a really nice weekend. Now on to....

I feel kind of silly giving you the recipe for this because it is so easy. But here it goes.

Ingredients

Dark/semisweet chocolate
White chocolate
crushed candy canes

How to....

Melt chocolate and layer, refrigerating between layers (up North here I just set it outside). While the white chocolate layer is warm sprinkle with the candy canes. I use the mini candy canes in individual wrapped bags( the kids have fun crushing them with kitchen utensils). Cool again, break, and package!

These are fun and easy to make. You can see Jake and our mini tutorial down below. He was a good sport to let me photograph his cooking debut.
Storyboard pops

Ingredients

Marshmallows
colored chocolate
sprinkles
sucker sticks and bags

How to....

Again, easy breezy. Place marshmallows on sticks, melt chocolate, dip, sprinkle, and cool. Once cool we wrapped them up in cellophane. We used floral foam wrapped in foil for display.

There you have it, easy, fun, and best of all the kids can help with these. June even joined in putting marshmallows on sticks and cutting ribbon for the wrapping. Hope your holiday season is in full swing. Thanks for looking.

I have one question for you. How do you stand up the pops while they are drying and for your photos? Thanks!

Lisa said...

Those are just great! I have made cake pops before but they take to long. By the time it's time to decorate my kids leave me and i'm doing them all myself. I think I may just like marshmallow pops more.

GREAT PHOTOS!

I was thinking of you just the other day wondering what fun post you'd come up with for the holidays. Wow! I really do think you have found your calling. Food photography. You have a gift. You manage to set everything up perfectly and I want to climb over and partake. These look scrumptious. Thanks for sharing and linking to project alicia.

Sorry I'm late to the party. Not sure how I happened on these, but I've been thinking about you and wondering what photos you came up with for christmas. Your photos are beautiful and inspiring and I totally want to make those red marshmallow pops for valentine's now. Where does one find the colored chocolate or did you use food coloring? I'll reread incase I missed that. Who doesn't like marshmallows? :) Hope you have a happy and blessed New Year!
