These little mugs of hot cocoa on a stick are a really adorable. Pair them with a festive mug and packet of hot chocolate mix, wrap it all up in cellophane or wrapping paper and you have a perfect handmade holiday gift, great for all ages! They are super easy to make, using only marshmallows and some melted chocolate or frosting and decorated with sprinkles. You can eat them off of the stick, or stir them into your hot cocoa!

Step 3:

Create the handles for your mug by cutting a marshmallow into 4 slices. Cut each slice in half and cut out the center, creating a "C" shape as shown.

Step 4:

Using the stickiness of the marshmallow handle, push them on to the sides of your marshmallow mugs. You may need to make 2 little holes on the side of the mug to push the handle into if they are not sticking on their own.

Step 5:

Using melted chocolate or chocolate frosting, add your "cocoa" to the tops of your mug, making sure to leave a rim around the edge of the top of the marshmallow.

Break up white jimmie sprinkles to resemble tiny little marshmallows and place on top of your chocolate. Alternatively, you can create a swirl of "whipped cream" out of vanilla frosting, using a small star tip. I used Wilton tip #18. Sprinkle cocoa powder on top if desired.
Absolutely adorable!

If you are having trouble getting the marshmallow handles to stick, try wetting the ends of the handle ever so slightly, it'll make it stickier, just be careful that it doesn't slip while drying.

Great idea. I just made 2 tiny little cuts on the side of the mug so the cut ends of the handle would stick to the open holes on the sides of the mug... this way you won't have to worry about the slipping :) Be sure to post a photo on the Dollhouse Bake Shoppe facebook wall if you make them so we can see how they turned out!
