This pepperminty sauce is one of my favorite Christmas gifts to give. I package it in a decorative jar, then add a container of chopped nuts to sprinkle over the topping.


  • 1-1/2 cups finely crushed peppermint candies or candy canes
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme


  1. In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture is smooth and candy is melted, stirring occasionally.
  2. Pour into small airtight containers. Store in the refrigerator. Serve warm over ice cream or cake.
