Peppermint Bark Covered Marshmallow Pops

Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Walking through Target I saw some candy cane chocolate marshmallows for sale. They obviously had dairy so we couldn’t eat them but the price tag was around $2.50 each (yes, each marshmallow). I went ahead and bought a bag of marshmallows and a box of candy canes and decided that we needed a gluten and dairy free version of these to enjoy.

You can throw these together very quickly and they are perfect for a party or just to enjoy.
When my kids saw these they went crazy. They absolutely loved them and I enjoyed them too.

These would look beautiful laid out for a Holiday party and would be perfect with a glass of champagne.

1 TBSP. Coconut Oil

7 Jumbo Marshmallows

5 Candy Canes


In a microwave safe bowl add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Melt in 30 second intervals stirring between (this only took 2, 30 second intervals for me). Allow the chocolate to cool. While it is cooling crush the candy canes and put on a plate for dipping. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put the lollipop sticks in the marshmallows. I push mine almost to the other side of the marshmallow without puncturing it through.

Once the melted chocolate has firmed slightly, grab the marshmallow by the stick and coat all sides of it. Dip it in the candy cane mixture and roll it on all sides to coat it well. I found that I needed to re-stir the crushed candy canes after each marshmallow. Place the dipped marshmallow on the parchment paper and repeat until all are done. Refrigerate for an hour. You do not need to keep these refrigerated unless your house is very hot. I kept mine in a Ziploc on the kitchen counter with no problems. Enjoy!
