marshmallow hot cocoa santas

this post was originally published on Design Dazzle's Christmas Wonderful series HERE.

hi guys!
is your holiday prep happenings coming to an end?
no no don't let the fun end now,
cuz these will surely put a smile 
on everyone's face when they see these 
hot cocoa marshmallow santa treats 
on christmas morning! 
heehee! these may look complicated but 
it's just a matter of gluing and drawing.

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.
next up:
hey hey hey you just made a mini mug!
so let’s fill ’em up!
use 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!
ok so you can do this:
go the fun way and do this:
 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 take a minute or 2). 

then you can do the following to finish the santas off.
oh but one more thing!
you can see the whole effect of your little santa man below:
so there you have it.
 cups of christmas cheer for everyone.
here's to a sane and wonderful rest of the week 
til the BIG day comes!
