Ingredients
Make It
Step 1
Line baking sheet with wax paper.
Step 2
Microwave 1/2 cup semi-sweet morsels and vegetable shortening in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.
Step 3
Dip the bowl of 8 plastic spoons and one end of 8 unwrapped peppermint candy sticks (or the handle of 8 unwrapped peppermint candy canes) in melted chocolate, tilting bowl to easily dip.
Step 4
Place 1 tablespoon crushed peppermints in small bowl. Microwave 1/4 cup white morsels in small, heavy-duty plastic bag on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 30 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag. Squeeze to drizzle over ends of already dipped spoons. Dip spoons in crushed peppermints; return to baking sheet. Drizzle remaining melted morsels over ends of already dipped candy sticks. Let stand until set. Insert a spoon or a candy stick into 16 cellophane bags and secure with twist ties. Store at room temperature.
Step 5
Layer remaining 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet morsels, remaining 3/4 cup white morsels and remaining crushed peppermint candies in 3-cup gifting jar or 16-inch disposable plastic pastry bag. Seal jar with lid or tie pastry bag closed with twist tie.
Step 6
Recipe to attach: Combine entire contents of cocoa mix with one can (12 fluid ounces) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk and 1 1/2 cups water in medium saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes or until peppermint candy is dissolved and chocolate is melted. Makes 8, 4-ounce servings.
