  • 1 10-ounce bag bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 16-ounce bag large marshmallows
  • 1 package small candy canes
  • 1 package crushed peppermint chips


  • Melt chocolate chips in a small crockpot* (see notes).
  • Insert candy cane into the center of a marshmallow. Dip the bottom half of the marshmallow into melted chocolate, and place on parchment paper for 30 seconds to 1 minute to let excess chocolate melt off.
  • Then, roll or dip chocolate marshmallow in crushed peppermint chips. Let cool and serve!


*You can melt the chocolate on the stove, in the microwave, or in a small crockpot. I melted my chocolate (very, VERY slowly) in the microwave first, then poured it into the crockpot. Be SURE when using the microwave method that you melt the chocolate slowly and check it often - every 30 seconds or so!
