Fall is finally here! It stands to reason that your entire world has been taken over by pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING. Not to say that Pumpkin Spice doesn’t deserve the attention, but I’d like to pay homage to another cool-weather classic: Hot Chocolate. Overlooked and underrated, this little treat makes a great giveaway as a party favor. It’s an ideal favor in fact, because it’s easy to create, offers a big impact and is oh-so-delicious! So, listen up for the skinny on how to make the sweetest Hot Cocoa Party Favors possible.
First, gather your supplies. Purchase cellophane treat cones at your favorite craft store…like these ones. I only needed 70, so a few bags did the trick. If you are making this favor for a wedding or larger event, I recommend purchasing them online as the cost should decrease. Visit your local bulk food store (Bulk Nation specifically) and purchase about 5 pounds of hot cocoa mix, 2 pounds of chocolate sprinkles and a pound of mini marshmallows. Next up: assemble the hot cocoa party favors.
Start with two and a half table spoons of coco mix, followed by two large scoops of chocolate sprinkles. Finally, top that off with four, yes four, scoops of mini marshmallows. Why so many marshmallows? Have you ever know someone to say, “Man, this cocoa has TOO many marshmallows”? Exactly. The more marshmallows, the better, so fill it to the top with!
Cut down twist tie (like the ones that come with the treat cones) to seal the cone off and keep the goodies from falling out. Lastly, tie a cute ribbon around the top to compliment your custom favor labels, which can be found here. As you can see, they come out beautifully and they will be the hit of the party! Now, go enjoy a steamy cup of chocolatey goodness!
