Hot chocolate favors.

I've been loving helping my Pastor plan her annual Christmas bash this year. I had the idea to bring hot chocolate & ugly sweaters into the theme of the party.
because I'm that cool.
And really? who doesn't love hot chocolate in the winter paired with an ugly sweater.
It's a win-win. :)
If your looking for a fun favor, think about this one for your guests. It's perfect for a winter wedding and oh-so-cute. :) {not to mention completely affordable!}

What you’ll need:
- 100, 12″ Disposable Decorating Bags (x3)
- Chocolate powder (x2 from Costco or Sam’s club)
- 75 teeny, tiny hair ties (x2)
- Marshmallows bags (x4)
- Twine (x1)
- Favor tags

Step 1: Cut decorating bags around 6.5″
Step 2: Fill bag with 2 tablespoons (or whatever your chocolate powder suggests) with chocolate.
Step 3: Use the teeny, tiny hair tie to close off the chocolate. (You may need to cut the access bag after tying it off. The picture below, for example, should be cut so there’s just about a 1/2 inch of bag showing after the hair tie.)
Step 4: Insert chocolate filled cone into another decorating bag; make sure seams line up.
Step 5: Scoop out a 1/4 cup of marshmallows and poor into decorating bag on top of the chocolate cone.
Step 6: Tie a piece of ribbon, yarn, or string above the marshmallows. You need to make this tight so the marshmallows don’t dry out. I tied it into two knots.
Step 7: After string is secure around bag, add your favor tag and tie it into a pretty bow.
Step 8: Repeat as many times as necessary.

And there you have it, a quick, easy, and affordable wedding favors that are perfect for fall and winter weddings!

Enjoy! :)
