To add a little variety to my gift baskets I made a dessert sauce. It could be a topping for ice cream served warm or cold or a dipping sauce for cookies and fruit as well. Super easy to make too which I loved. I doubled the recipe, but if you do 1 batch it will make enough to fill 3 8-ounce jars.
And just because I’m short on time (and lazy) I was excited to see these little bags at HEB near the nuts and coconut on the baking isle.
Before I get to the recipe I wanted to congratulate our winner of the Glee Gum candy kit babygirl92699!! Hope you enjoy making your treats as much as we did!
Marshmallow Peppermint Sauce
(Adapted from Cooks.com)
2/3 c. light corn syrup
3 tbsp. butter
7 oz. jar (1 1/2 c.) marshmallow creme
1/2 c. half & half
1/2 c. crushed hard peppermint candy
In medium saucepan, cook corn syrup and butter over low heat until mixture comes to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Stir in marshmallow creme, blending well. Cool 5 minutes.
Gradually add half & half, stirring until mixture is smooth.
Fold in crushed candy.
Serve warm or cool over ice cream. Store any remaining topping in refrigerator. Makes 2 cups.
To dress up the jars I printed out the title in red font on green paper then using my scrapbooking circle punch punched them out to attach to the top of the jar.
