Candy Cane Hot Cocoa

I fell in love with the candy cane hot chocolate stirrers so I went looking for some more cute candy cane cocoa ideas.

One Charming Party rolled marshmallows in crushed candy canes:

Not only do you get the peppermint flavor, but it looks pretty darn great too!

Chef Talk has a recipe for Candy Cane Hot Chocolate that uses peppermint extract for flavor, but I love the presentation with the candy cane through the whipped cream:

Perfect for a dessert table.

And if you want to kill two birds with one stone, you can make candy cane marshmallows using this recipe from Martha Stewart:

If you have never had a homemade marshmallow than you are missing out.  They are about a million times better than the store bought variety.  They are about a million times more work too though.

peppermint marshmallows are genius. Have you tried the peppermint Hershey kisses? They are ADDICTING!

The first time I tried making homemade marshmallows, I thought it would work out just as well to use flavored gelatin (you know, I wanted flavored marshmallows). Well, we ended up with a sticky pink mess. But, my husband always talks about how fun it was as he sat and ate the failed marshmallows with my uncle who has since passed away. :)
