        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!

      Remember years ago, a cousin brought some brandy filled chocolate covered cherries from Germany. Reading this post brought back child hood memories.
