heehee! these may look complicated but it’s just a matter of gluing and drawing.

first of all, lemme introduce myself.  it’s lisa from hoopla palooza, back again for another Christmas Wonderful post. my blog’s all about fun tutes and i’m sooo lucky to be back here!

but enough about me, let’s go on with the how-to’s for these holly jolly hot cocoa treats.

you will need the following:

regular size marshmallows, mini marshmallows, mini marshmallow bits, santa candy hats, melted white and milk chocolate (from chips, candy melts or almond bark), various sprinkles, christmas straws, black food marker

ok let’s get to it.

first poke a straw thru each regular size marshmallow. put these aside along with your santa hats you can get from target.

5-marshmallow-hot-cocoa-santas-step-4-fill-mugs-hooplapaloozause a toothpick to add the chocolate-i melted some almond bark but a few chocolate chips melted in the microwave will do too-you don’t need much at all, as you are just using the chocolate to top the mini mugs. and then before you know it, you’ll get a whole city of mini hot cocoa mugs!

coat the top of each marshmallow with white almond bark, add sprinkles, candy glue the mug as shown, and add the santa hat to the top (you’ll need to hold the hat in place til the candy dries a little-it only takes a minute or 2).

then you can do the following to finish the santas off.
