Peppermint Stir Sticks

IMG_0291edited

After Christmas time, I was left with an overabundance of peppermint candies. I was trying to think of a creative way to use them up, when I got the idea for these stir sticks. They are perfect to stir in your coffee or hot coco, leaving a minty, chocolaty flavor. They also make cute treats for friends or coworkers!

You Will Need:

Peppermint candies

Chocolate Chips

Cake pop sticks

Cooking Spray

Oven safe mugs

Cookie Sheet

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat the inside of each mug with cooking spray. Unwrap the mints, and place 6 in the bottom of each mug. Set mugs on the cookie sheet, and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the mints are melted. Sprinkle a thin layer of chocolate chips onto the melted mints, and place back in the oven until the chocolate starts to melt. Gently push a cake pop stick into the center of each candy. Let mugs cool, then place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Using a dull knife or a spatula, loosen the edges of the peppermint candies. They should pop right out of the mugs and be ready for the hot drink of your choice!
