Marshmallow Swizzle Sticks

I served these yummy marshmallow swizzle sticks along with homemade hot cocoa at a holiday party last week. The peppermint flavor punches up your average cup of cocoa, not to mention they make for a pretty and festive display! I bought the swizzle sticks in the dollar bin section at Target, but regular skewers would work too if you don't mind losing some of the "bling." :) They also make great Christmas gifts for co-workers and neighbors when packaged with a couple of packets of instant hot cocoa and (not-your-cheesy-holiday-type) white mugs.

Here's the recipe:
  1. Make a thin glaze from powdered/confectioner's sugar and milk.
  2. Crush candy canes or peppermint candy.
  3. Dip marshmallows first in glaze, then in crushed candy.
  4. Place marshmallows candy side up on a sheet of wax paper to harden.
  5. Pierce one or two marshmallows on each swizzle stick or skewer.
  6. Arrange on tray and serve with hot cocoa.
