Aren't they beautiful? Who knew it would take 5 minutes to make an absolutely stunning homemade edible gift? I DID haha! These are the simplest, cheapest thing in the world to make and people go GAGA over them. This year, I even saw little candy bags with ties at the Dollar Store. Can you believe it? And that tray they are sitting on? Dollar Tree. Please trust me and make these. 4 ingredients. Then the recipient simply swirls the sticks into their favorite hot beverage whether it be hot tea, hot cocoa, hot coffee..mmmmmm creamy minty goodness I tell you! Children fight over these as well, so make a lot people!
Peppermint Swizzle Sticks
(Courtesy of - I have no idea)
1 bag large marshmallows
1 cup of powdered sugar
Several candy canes or red & white mints, crushed (not powdered)
Pour powdered sugar into a bowl and add a teaspoon of water at a time until you get a "glaze" consistency. Take a marshmallow and dip the top of it into the glaze, about a 1/4 of the way onto the sides. Shake off excess. Dip and roll into candy cane pieces. Set onto wax paper, on the side that is not glazed, until completely set. Thread 1-2 marshmallows onto the sticks and put inside candy bags and tie to keep fresh.
