Hot Chocolate & Marshmallow PEEPS On A Stick


  • 8 ounces semi-sweet milk or dark chocolate finely chopped
  • ½ cup powdered sugar sifted
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder sifted
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 Marshmallow PEEPS® of your choice
  • ½ cup crushed candy canes optional
  • 8 sticks straws or spoons
  • Large zipper style freezer bag
  • Ice cube tray or mini muffin pan


  • 1. In a large bowl combine powdered sugar, cocoa powder and pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • 2. If desired, sprinkle crushed candy canes in the bottom of your muffin pan or ice cube tray.
  • 3. Prepare your sticks, straws or spoons by sliding a PEEPS® marshmallow peppermint star onto them, leaving about 1/2" to 1" of room at the bottom for your chocolate. Set aside.
  • 4. Add chopped chocolate to a medium size microwave safe bowl (make sure that bowl is completely dry first, water and chocolate melting do not mix).
  • 5. Microwave chocolate at 50% power for 30 seconds at a time, stirring well after each 30 seconds.
  • 6. Once chocolate is almost melted, remove from microwave and continue to stir well until chocolate melts completely.
  • 7. Add melted chocolate to your dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • 8. The mixture will be extremely thick and appear grainy.
  • 9. Once mixed, spoon the mixture into a large freezer size zipper style bag.
  • 10. Squeeze chocolate into eight compartments.
  • 11. Stick spoons, sticks or spoons into the chocolate (chocolate is thick enough that these should stand on their own).
  • 12. Place in fridge to allow chocolate to set. This can also be done on the countertop, but will take longer.
  • 13. Once completely dry, pop out of your ice cube tray or mini muffin pan.
  • 14. Wrap in plastic wrap or bags to store.
  • To use:
  • 1. heat up one 8oz cup of milk per person.
  • 2. Once heated, add the hot cocoa stick and stir.
  • 3. It will take several minutes to dissolve and then you can enjoy your hot cocoa and Marshmallow PEEPS®.
  • Tip: Use PEEPS® snowmen in lieu of peppermint stars.
