Ingredients

  • 1 bag marshmallows
  • 35 lollipop sticks
  • 10 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 1/2 cup crushed candy canes about 20 mini candy canes
  • 1/2 cup crushed Heath or Skor bars about 2 bars
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 35 paper candy cups

Instructions

  • Insert lollipop sticks deep into the marshmallows, taking care not to poke them through the other side.
  • Place chocolate and shortening in a medium-sized microwave-proof bowl. Microwave on 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
  • Working with one marshmallow at a time, invert marshmallow and dip it into the chocolate until three-quarters of the marshmallow is coated. Tap the stick while holding the marshmallow over the bowl to get rid of excess chocolate.
  • Immediately sprinkle the chocolate coating with candy cane pieces, Heath Bar pieces or shredded coconut.
  • Poke the lollipop stick through a paper candy cup and push up to meet marshmallow. Poke the sticks into a piece of florist's styrofoam. Let the chocolate dry. Eat!
