Baking project #2 Ruldolph Noses

So baking project #2 are Ruldolph Noses.
I tried to come up with something clever to name them but I wastnt feeling all that creative I guess so Ruldolph Noses was the best I could come up with.
I've seen variations of this goodie all over the place and I decided to make mine with crushed candy cane pieces.
Disclaimer: I cannot stand the smell and taste of candy canes. I think I was traumatized sometime as
a child. I know there were ants involved and thats as far as I'll go with that story.

I dont have a roller (note to self put that on shopping list) and I was lazy to bust out a ziplock bag for this part so I basically pounded them out with my meat tenderizer.
Not recommended!
The pieces were pulverized and stuck in one huge lump in between the teeth of the tenderizer.
When I learned this I went more gently.

I had some big pieces and some small
Then I melted my almond bark. I used almond bark because I couldnt find white candy melts, things like that are hard to come by around here.

I dont have a double boiler so a pot and bowl worked just fine.
Go slowly so that it doesnt burn, nothing taste worse than burnt almond bark, trust me.

Then I dipped my marshmallows in the almond bark.

Then I dipped them in the candy cane pieces. The candy cane pieces were all stuck together so I had to play with them a little bit and use a spoon to get them to stick easier.

Then I put them aside to dry.

Just look at all those marshmallows!
I hope they taste as good as they look because between marshmallows and candy canes I was NOT going to sample them.
I forgot to mention I also have an adversion to marshmallows as well. (hehe)

I'm linking to the parties {here}

Well think of it as a lo cal baking fix. When I'm in the mood to bake and not be tempted to eat it, I make dog treats. Win Win (for the dog that is)
