Hot Cocoa For Two


Looking for a last minute gift idea?  Just a few simple ingredients and you can create these super easy hot chocolate cones!


Make your own hot chocolate with powdered milk, cocoa and sugar, or save even more time and buy a high quality mix like the one above from Whole Foods.


Layering the cone-shaped bags is easy.  Put 1/4 cup cocoa mix on the bottom.  Place 2-3 tablespoons of  your "add-in" flavors in a pleated sandwich bag.  Seal with tape and snip off the top.  Be creative with your flavors.  I used white chocolate and dark chocolate, but crushed candy canes or toffee bits would also be delicious!   Place the bags, tape side down, on top of the cocoa mix.  Top with 1/4 - 1/2 cup of marshmallows (can you really have too many?) and close with a twist tie.  Make your own simple label (I used a 2" round punch for a perfect circle) and secure with a festive ribbon.



A sweet and simple gift!
