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 really want to make these special you can 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 tablespoons of baking cocoa to the mixture)
- Candy Canes
- Edible Writing Pens
These are so simple, the kids will enjoy creating them.
Step #1: Break off the hook end off 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 include snowflakes, steaming mugs of cocoa, candy canes, snowman faces, etc
To add designs using colored sprinkles you’ll need water, sprinkles and a fine paintbrush.
“Paint” the design of your choice onto the marshmallow with water and roll in colored sprinkles. 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.
