Cooks Wisdom! Don't wait for after Christmas, make the frozen version now, or sooner.....
Do you still have a little bit of Christmas at your house? If you do, you are in luck, because I am going to show you how to make a delicious dessert with this candy .
You have the option of making a 9X13 pan to serve as squares or use 15 muffin cups for individual desserts.
The best part about the muffin cups, is that you can freeze them. Imagine how nice it will be to have a delicious dessert waiting in the freezer. Cold, delicious, minty, waiting. See, I told you this was a real good idea!
Chilled Mint Cups or Squares
adapted from: My friend, Sue K
makes 15 servings
1 pint of whipping cream
4 oz of peppermint candy canes
2 c mini marshmallows
1 "sleeve" graham crackers
Turn the graham crackers into crumbs. I have found this is easy if you use a 2 step process.
Break up the candy cane into smaller pieces. Then pulverize into "sugar" in the food processor.
Chill for 8 hours or overnight, enjoy now and freeze any leftovers for future desserts.
As always thanks for taking a minute to stop and say hello. We appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
