mini cups of cocoa cheer

i am officially in 20 degree weather as i write this and loving it.
this means a ton to me cuz FL is 
too freakin' hot and the more i freeze,
the happier i am cuz the holiday spirit grows in me.

yeah yeah i know christmas 
and new year's are over but 
i am going to show you how to make a little winter treat to give out cuz who says anyone has to stop giving?
oh and also cuz i LOVE hot cocoa 
and will find every excuse to drink it 
outside of hot, sticky, humid weather 
i'm usually in.
(and yes i am on vacation as i speak 
if you haven't figured that out yet)

anyway,this is what you can call a warm fuzzy that requires mini mason jars from 
tj maxx, marshall's or home goods.

then grab some sweet stuff like this:
put that aside and grab some 
dollar tree or hobby lobby picks 
you can find on clearance now along with 
mini cupcake liners.
now stick and draw on 3 mini marshmallows 
with food marker like this:
and grab that hot cocoa jar again.





and there you have your winter cheer-
after holiday-
what the heck it's fun to give-
kinda treat.
all ya gotta do is add water 
and share some good cheer. 
i gave these out for my BFF's 50th bday party 
but like i said you can give them out just for fun or 
make some for your family as a surprise treat.
it's a great way to start the year 
don'tcha think?
