This will probably be one of the easiest desserts/snacks you’ll make this holiday season. It takes 3 ingredients and 5 minutes.

My friend Emily found these on Pinterest and she had them at her jewelry party last Friday and I just had to recreate them. They’re too cute! It’s such a simple snack but it has multiple uses. For example, you can use these as stirrers for hot chocolate (peppermint hot chocolate, anyone?) or you can have them out on display as little pops to have as an after dinner treat or this could be part of your desserts section if you’re holding a potluck. If you have a mini fondue set, you could use these too, or a chocolate fountain?!

A fun idea & a way to get your party involved would be to have the marshmallows, lollipop sticks, and peppermint pieces out on a table and have everyone “make their own”. You can have different chocolates (semi-sweet, dark, milk, white) and have everyone make their own dessert. Fun, huh?
