Candy Cane Marshmallow
Every year my daughters and I make plates of Xmas cookies to give out to teachers, family and friends. This candy cane marshmallow is one of those spur-of-the-moment concoctions we dreamed up together one night and came about as my daughter just loves anything peppermint, candy canes and marshmallow. So we tried to put all three together!
This Candy Cane Marshmallow recipe is dairy free, egg free, nut free and gluten free if you use gluten free icing sugar.
*Thanks to Edmonds for allowing me to publish their base marshmallow recipe which this concoction is adapted from.
To get the stripy effect, I painted the inside of a piping bag with stripes of red food colouring with a small paintbrush. Then I filled it with the white marshmallow. If you keep piping, the red effect will start to flow through.I pipe it in circular motions so it sits a bit higher, but it doesn’t really matter how you do it.
White Christmas Slice
This White Christmas Slice is not my original recipe (there are many versions floating around the internet such as this one), but one I have adapted slightly to work for our allergy household. It is part of the Christmas cookie/baking selection we make every year to gift to family, friends and teachers. It is dairy, egg, nut, and gluten free so okay for all of my kids and they love it! Truthfully Miss 5 painstakingly picks out all the currants but other than that it’s a huge success. It also keeps for a couple of weeks in sealed containers in the fridge 🙂
