The kids love to help me dip and sprinkle the marshmallows.
The first time I ever made them, Madeline was really little and didn’t like that I wouldn’t let her help.
What a mess that would have been.
I think she would have just eaten all of the Homemade Chocolate Dipped Candy Cane Marshmallows as I was making them!
Along with these marshmallows, this year I am trying candied orange peel and salted caramels.
If you’ve never make chocolate dipped candies before, make sure you check out these instructions for How to Temper Chocolate.
Learning how to temper chocolate properly is essential when you want to make homemade candies.
Tempered chocolate will cool into a hardened state with a shiny appearance.
When broken or bitten into will break with a snap.
Think about the outer shell on a ganache truffle – you wouldn’t want the outer texture of a truffle to be dull, sticky and tacky, would you?
You want it to be a smooth and shiny shell.
