Holiday Hot Cocoa

December 16, 2014

PDF Hot Cocoa Stick Instructions


Ditch the powdered packets and crunchy dehydrated ‘mallows — your cute mug will thank you! Instead, opt for the most indulgent cup of cocoa you’ve ever tasted! Simply stir your cocoa cube into 8 ounces of hot milk, top with the two super soft mallows, and sip with a smile.

I keep these guys on hand (in a glass jar) for when a sudden cocoa craving hits. Serve them on a pretty platter for a party, Christmas morning, or when guests stop by! They’re the perfect little gifts tied up in twine for neighbors, friends, teacher gifts, oh and your mailman (can’t forget all the work that guy does). And yes, if you’re a peppermint fan — definitely go for the chocolate candy cane topping. It’s like a Christmas kiss in a cup!

    Perfect for a cold New England night like tonight… bitter cold with the fireplace roaring. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve been needing a quick gift for friends! THIS adorable little number is just the ticket! Love the idea of keeping them on hand all the time. My kids would equally enjoy them! THANK YOU!!!

    You never cease to amaze me! I remember when you posted something similar several years back; but you’ve really upped the ante with the homemade marshmallows and peppermint chocolates! MMMM!

    Hi Missy! I’m hosting a camp out bday party in a few weeks and have been sifting through your posts for ideas. I’m thinking of making a few types of the homemade mallows and wanted to know a) how far in advance can I make em and b) any ideas on how to make a raspberry flavored mallow (should I used fresh fruit, jam, extract). Your help is much appreciated!! 🙂
