So I came up with these little personal ornaments. Make this special gift for your friends and family to enjoy Christmas eve, or decorate your tree with them and enjoy a hot cocoa every evening before Christmas. Perfect treat to help you get cozy and warm this Christmas.
4 packages of microwave popcorn or 16 cups popped popcorn
4 Tbsp butter
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1 package (3.4 oz) of butterscotch instant pudding mix
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Ginger
What you need for 16 servings of Red Hot Cocoa (makes approx. 8 ornaments):
1 3/4 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 cup powdered nondairy creamer
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 cup dehydrated miniature marshmallows (I found mine on amazon)
2 packages of theatre size red hots candy
8 Glass craft ornaments -purchased mine at hobby lobby and don't forget your 40 percent off coupon ;)
Once a bag is done popping dump it into a larger bowl or pan and tilt it so the unpopped kernals roll to the bottom and you can easily pick them out. That way you don't have any breaking your teeth inside your treat!
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees
Mix cinnamon, pudding mix, and ginger in a cup.
