Wrapping with a Sweet Treat {Peppermint Marshmallow DIY}

I have a weird infatuation with food on a stick.
Does it make it taste better?
Not sure.
But it sure does make it fun.

Here is my Peppermint Marshmallows on a Stick:
What you will need:
- Marshmallows
- Sticks {I used the 4in}
- Round Wood Beads {16mm}
- Wiltons Dipping Candy {I used white}
- Peppermint Candy Canes {smashed into bits, food processor works great}
- Gorilla Glue
- Candy Baggies {I used 3 x 4in}
- Twine, yarn or pipe cleaner {to close your bags}

First thing you want to do is glue your beads to the ends of the sticks {you can paint them if you
would like, I preferred the natural color}. Let dry for a hr or so.

Once they are dry, stick a marshmallow on the end.

After melting your Wiltons, dip the marshmallow half way into the candy. Make sure you scrap the excess off the marshmallow.

Next dip them into the crushed peppermint, making sure to coat them.

Place on a cookie sheet to harden.

Wrap up in your candy bags.

Now you have the perfect topper for your wrapping.
Remember those AWESOME teacher gifts yesterday, here they are all ready to be handed out
now with a yummy treat on top.

I found these adorable FREE gift tags on Eat Drink Chic. Downloaded them and printed them out on some colored card stock. Then took a little scrap of fabric and sewed a little ruffle to them.

Happy wrapping.
