Now, a few notes. Yes, this does work a little more awesome with mini candy canes, but we go big in this house so there! And yes, I’m sure this would be prettier with white chocolate, but Johanna doesn’t like white chocolate. Lastly, I’m sure it would look more Christmasy with red and green sprinkles, but Johanna prefers the marshmallows in from her cereal, so there’s that.

This treat is super easy to make. If you use candy melts you can leave it to set for about 15 minutes, but if you use milk chocolate it’s best to pop it in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

I hope your little ones enjoy this treat! Johanna sure did.
