Rich and creamy, this dessert is 'something different' for the holidays! Serve it on its own for a quick dessert, or offer a tempting plate of cookies on the side. Fill pretty gift mugs with the mixture, then let your guests take them home!
- 1 10 ounce package miniatature marshmallows, divided
- 2 cups hot, strong coffee
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 1/2 pint whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons powdered sugar
Extra whipping cream, whipped, and candy canes (whole and crushed), for garnish
Remove a handful of marshmallows for garnish, about 20, and set aside. In a large bowl, combine hot coffee and remaining marshmallows; stir. Stir until marshmallows melt down and are well blended. Allow to cool, stirring occasionally as mixture will separate,, adding peppermint extract; mix well. In a separate bowl, whip whipping cream and powdered sugar until stiff. Gently fold in coffee/marshmallow mixture and remaining marshmallows; blend well. Divide into mugs or bowls and refrigerate, at least one hour. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream, candy canes, and crushed candy cane pieces. Serve cold.
