{DIY: H is for Hot Cocoa Cone Favors}

hot cocoa
With the temperature drop, nothing sounds better right now then a delicious cup of hot cocoa.  I found this fabulous recipe on for Hot Cocoa Cones.  A perennial winter favorite, hot cocoa with all the trimmings (mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and a cherry-red gumdrop) sports an even sweeter look packaged as a cone. This makes a great gift for weddings, showers, or even holiday parties. Be sure to add a tag letting your recipients know the cone contains enough for four servings.

3/4 cup cocoa mix
2 (6- by 12-inch) cone-shaped cellophane bags (available at party stores)
2 clear rubber bands (we used ponytail holders)
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup mini marshmallows
1 large red gumdrop

1. Pour the cocoa mix into one of the bags. Close the bag with a clear rubber band, then trim the end of the bag 1 inch above the band.

2. Place the cocoa-filled bag into the second bag and flatten its top so the end doesn't stick up.

3. Layer the chocolate chips and the marshmallows, then top with the gumdrop. Secure the bag with the other rubber band.

{Kim's Food For Thought}
Bag up your favorite soup, cookie, or cake recipes in these cones as well.

Decorate them to match the theme of your party or wedding.
Add little pipe cleaners and a red pom to make a Rudolph.
