CHOCOLATE COVERED PEPPERMINT STICKS — Chocolate and peppermint come together in this quick and easy holiday treat! Perfect for stirring your hot chocolate!

Chocolate Covered Peppermint Sticks

I love the idea of packaging up cute holiday treats and giving them away to neighbors, teachers and friends. And these Chocolate Covered Peppermint Sticks are the perfect last-minute holiday gift! 

I often find that by the time the holidays have arrived, I still haven’t gotten around to accomplishing what I set out to do. Which is why these Chocolate Covered Peppermint Sticks are my new go-to holiday neighbor gift. 

Packaged up on their own, or with a tin of hot chocolate mix, this is a holiday treat everyone will love!

If you can find the Bob’s Sweet Stripe Soft Peppermint Sticks, I definitely recommend going with those. I always see them in Walmart right after Halloween.

I stock up right then and there (and by stock up, I mean I buy half of what’s on the shelves) because I love them so much and can’t find them anywhere else. And if I wait until December, they’re gone!

They are the perfect size and texture for this recipe, especially if you want to just eat your chocolate covered peppermint sticks outright. These chocolate covered peppermint sticks also make great hot cocoa stirrers.

If you can’t get your hands on any Bob’s Sweet Stripes, regular peppermint sticks or even candy canes will work, especially for cocoa stirring.

Be sure to save this recipe for Chocolate Covered Peppermint Sticks to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
