Peppermint Marshmallow Pops

Follow Cuckoo for Coupons on Pinterest for frugal tips, ideas and yummy recipes!

I’ve had a lot of cake pops before that honestly weren’t that great.  But they were so darn cute! So when I saw these marshmallow pops I knew I’d found the perfect mix of taste + cuteness.  These would be perfect for pretty much any Christmas party, from casual to formal. If you have children who might not like peppermint, you can substitute the jolly rancher flavored candy canes to create the same effect.

Wilton Candy Melts are my favorite, but if you don’t have them you can substitute other brands.

I’m also a huge fan of white chocolate, so I dip my marshmallows generously in the chocolate.

World's BEST Roasted Garlic Potatoes #Thanksgiving

Well prepared mashed potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes! The roasted garlic added to these potatoes makes this a definite repeat recipe for me.  You can double or triple this recipe and make enough for a big Thanksgiving dinner too.  I prefer real butter and heavy cream, because this recipe is all about taste not calories ;)

Here is a picture of all the ingredients needed:
