Trader Joe’s makes candy cane “oreos”…fabulous! 

1.  Insert a mini candy cane into your marshmallows.

2.  Dip some marshmallows in melted chocolate disks and set on wax paper.


3.  Sprinkle on crushed candy canes (I used crushed peppermint candies by Andes) and crushed candy cane cookie crumbs.  Will set in just a few minutes.  

Wrap up with some hot chocolate packets for the perfect Christmas gift!

FUDGE STRIPED COOKIE "S’MORES"

I feel like I’m cheating a little bit in posting this as a “recipe” since it only has 2 ingredients and is so simple, but I wanted to share this idea with everyone since it has become a family tradition in our home! I absolutely love s’mores, but I only like them when the chocolate is completely melted and that never happens when you roast marshmallows in the great outdoors.  You end up with a well roasted marshmallow, cold chocolate and then the graham crackers are always breaking because the chocolate is too hard.

A couple of years ago, some friends introduced us to an ingenious way of making “s’mores”- all you need is a bag of marshmallows and a box of fudge striped cookies.  That’s it!  You can make these the traditional way by roasting marshmallows over a campfire, you can make them in the microwave, or you can use an oven…all of these methods produce the same gooey, delicious results!

Fudge Striped Cookies “S’mores”

  • 1 bag marshmallows (I used the StackerMallows variety but you can use regular large marshmallows)
  • 1 package Fudge Striped Cookies

Oven method: Place half of the cookies upside down (chocolate side up) on a cookie sheet and then place the marshmallows on top of the cookies.  (I used parchment paper on the cookie sheet to make the clean up easier, but it will work fine without too!)  Top each marshmallow with another cookie right side up and then place in the oven at 300 degrees for about 5-7 minutes.  As soon as the marshmallows are getting soft and melted, they are ready to eat!  Enjoy!
