Ingredients

Chocolate Cups

1 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
10 (2-inch) foil baking cups

Filling

1/2 cup milk
24 large marshmallows
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
6 drops red food color
1/3 cup crushed starlight peppermint candies, reserve 1 tablespoon

Directions

Melt chocolate chips over low heat in 1 quart saucepan, stirring occasionally, until chips are melted (4 to 5 minutes). Place 10 baking cups in muffin pan. Using pastry brush, coat inside of each cup evenly with melted chocolate to about 1/8 inch thick, bringing coating almost to top of cup but not over edge. Refrigerate until firm (at least 30 minutes).

Meanwhile, combine milk and marshmallows in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted (8 to 12 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in salt, vanilla, peppermint extract and food color. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon (about 40 minutes).

Meanwhile, beat whipping cream in medium bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Stir marshmallow mixture until smooth. Gently stir marshmallow mixture and crushed peppermint candies into whipped cream. Spoon 1/3 cup marshmallow whipped cream mixture into each chocolate cup. Refrigerate until set (at least 2 hours).

Carefully remove foil liners from chocolate cups. To serve, sprinkle with reserved 1 tablespoon crushed candies. Store refrigerated.

TIP: Stirring marshmallow mixture occasionally during chilling will help prevent separation of mixture.

Cranberry Pavlova – A New Thanksgiving Dessert
November 20, 2014 by Mallory

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite. More ...
