Candy Cane Marshmallow Dunkers

Chocolate Candy Cane Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Dunkers

Kind of a long name, I may have to come up with something shorter, but for the time being it will have to do, I suppose.

So I was making these for the kids bake sale at school and *thought* they would be so cute. I wanted to make them with my homemade marshmallows. Key word there - thought!

I speared the marshmallows with the mini candy canes,

I dipped them in chocolate,

And put them in lite plastic baggies. And set the aside for the bake sale.

Thank God I did them a week early because sun I went to check on them later this is what I found...

A sticky gooey mess, apparently homemade marshmallows have a bit more moisture than store bought ones. LAME!

I was pretty disappointed but keep your chin up, I think I saved them. I sprinkled them with powdered sugar, trying to soak up that extra moisture. Since the candy canes seemed to have melted in the marshmallows and left a bit of red on them. I put them back in baggies and labeled them as peppermint marshmallows. We will see how they turn out. I hope they will be good.

So, I really love this idea but it just didn't work with MY marshmallows.  To do it over again I would use store bought ones for this project.  But in the end I think it will work out ok anyway!
