After we made the first batch, we tired using some white peppermint chocolate instead. The first batch was prettier, but the second batch tasted better (in my opinion).
The kids of course had to sample both kinds.
It was hard convincing them to only eat one of each kind. There was some grumping involved (especially from the youngest one). Then I had an idea: Bananas on sticks dipped in sprinkles! They like the banana lollipops just as much as the chocolate!
