These yummy little packages are crispy and crunchy on the outside and ooey, gooey on the inside. So delicious and perfect for a holiday get-together, school party (if non-food treats aren’t preferred), or your holiday treat tray. The kids will love making them because it’s a bit of a messy job, which is even better.
Here’s how to make these easy, delicious, allergy-friendly goodies.
Chocolate Holiday Bombs
Makes about 32.
1, 250 g bag original or campfire sized marshmallows
2 cups safe semi-sweet chocolate chips (Hershey’s Chipits work for us, but Enjoy Life may be the best bet)
2 tbsp coconut oil or lard
1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy canes or hard candy (OR 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract OR crushed Dum Dums Lollipops in flavour of your choice)**
2 cup safe rice crisp cereal (I used Made Good brand)
icing sugar for sprinkling
Melt chocolate in a double broiler over med. heat.
Add oil to chocolate to thin it out slightly.
Mix crushed candy canes & rice crisp cereal together in a pan.
Put marshmallow on a skewer and dip marshmallows into chocolate. Let excess chocolate drip off.
Roll in rice crisp & candy cane mixture.
Remove from skewer and let dry on a pan. Sprinkle icing sugar on top after it has dried (optional).
If chocolate becomes too thick to dip, simply re-melt it over the double broiler again.
** You can use any safe chocolate. Peppermint tastes really good with semi sweet chocolate, but you could also try milk or white chocolate (if they’re safe for you), and add things like crushed safe pretzels, other flavours of safe candy canes, cookie crumbs, Christmas sprinkles, or other safe candies. Play with the flavour combinations based on your familiy’s allergies to see what you love best.
