Candy Cane Marshmallow Pops

Looking over my list of baking so far in the 24 Days of Christmas Baking I discovered that I needed something fun for the kids. Each year I like to make a couple treats that are totally for the kids. So, I made these Candy Cane Marshmallow Pops and immediately the kids wanted to try one. I don’t know if it was the marshmallow, the bright colours of the crushed candy cane or that they are sitting on a lollipop stick, but the kids flipped when they saw them. I must admit that the kid in me wanted to eat one as well! Super easy to make these are an awesome addition to any holiday sweet tray.
