• Marshmallow Cocoa Stirrers

    Delight your kids, friends and neighbors with these deliciously fun Marshmallow Hot Chocolate stirrers! Package a 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





    To add designs using colored sprinkles You'll need water, sprinkles and fine paintbrush.




    "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.




    How to Draw A snowflake:
    First, Draw an "X"
    Draw a line through the middle of the "X"
    Add various size "V"s or dots, as desired.

      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!
