Chocolate Marshmallow Peppermint Stir Sticks For Cocoa

Chocolate Marshmallow Peppermint Stir Sticks For Hot Chocolate I like to give my friends something crafty that I’ve made myself as Christmas gifts. I learned long ago I don’t have to spend a lot of money, they’re just as happy to get a small handmade gift every year. This year I decided to make Chocolate Marshmallow Peppermint Stir Stick for Hot Cocoa. 

I picked up some hand painted Christmas mugs from a local artist, made up a batch of my low calorie Hot Chocolate (recipe below), and spent a snowy afternoon making stir sticks. It’s just enough to let my friends know that I love them and am thinking about them over Christmas. This makes for a great hostess gift or teachers gift too. 

If you can’t find stir sticks you can use a plastic spoon, wooden skewer, or popsicle stick. I found the ones I used at Home Goods, they have the word JOY printed on the end of each one. 

Watch the slideshow below to see how it’s done!
