    few with some homemade cocoa and you've got an instant gift for under $5!
    First, this recipe calls for marshmallows. You can use store-bought if you like, but If you prefer to make your own- follow the marshmallow recipe here, then simply cut the marshmallows out using a tiny gingerbread man cookie cutter, you can make them light brown by adding 2 Tbs Cocoa to the mixture)

    You'll Need:

    These are so simple, the kids will enjoy creating them.

    Step #1: Break off the hook end of the candy cane.

    Step #2: Insert it into a marshmallow.

    Step #3: Using the edible pens (I prefer Americolor Gourmet Writers) add designs.

    Some ideas are: Snowflakes, steaming mugs of cocoa, candy
    canes, snowman faces etc

    "Paint" the design of your choice onto the marshmallow with water and roll in colored sprinkles.

    Some Tips:
    You'll need to work fast as the water will evaporate leaving gaps in your design.

      Adorable! I will try these, along with the home made cocoa. It would be fun to use cherry sticks also for a cherry cocoa treat. Neat!

      Making these today! I'm using Hershey's chocolate mint candy canes, I almost got carmel and vanilla and chocolate and vanilla marshmallows, but I thought the candy canes were enough flavoring! With Strawberry Marshmallows, and Pumpkin shaped ones, these aren't just limited to Christmas! Thanks for sharing!
