Do you remember last week’s excitement when I discovered how to make Sweet & Pink Peppermint Krispie Treats? I have heard from some of you that you did what I did, bought the last of the marshmallows and made these delicious treats for your cookie exchanges and to give to friends and family.
When I flipped over the marshmallow sack I saw a little blurb about dipping the JUMBO marshmallows in bakers chocolate for a marshmallow peppermint pattie. That intrigued me. I had a few marshmallows left over (from my SECOND batch of Krispies) and so …
Now, I told you I thought the Peppermint Krispies were the best new recipe of the season. While I still think it is pretty awesome, if you are a chocolate-lover at all, or if you live with one (like I do) this just may be the crème de la crème of chocolate candies for the season!
You will need to buy the JUMBO Peppermint Marshmallows, as they are large and oval shaped but not too thick. I melted 1/2 Nestle chocolate chips and 1/2 either white almond bark or chocolate almond bark. Either one of the barks mixed with the Nestle chocolate chips makes a chocolate easy to dip but so rich you may be thinking you are eating dark chocolate. I used two forks and gently held the marshmallow as I dipped and I shook off a little chocolate before laying on tin foil to harden. I put a little crushed peppermint for a “snow on the mountain” look and they too turned out delicious!
My two culinary consultants were thrilled beyond words. Both were grinning from ear to ear as they tried to swipe at the chocolate lipstick they wore as they gobble these down. WARNING: Eat slowly and savor. They are rich!!! One may be enough. Or two. Or three. 🙂
