Candy Santa Cocoa Stir Stick

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Although where we live in Arizona where it doesn’t get snow, it still gets really chilly on our sunny winter days and we have a fun tradition of making hot cocoa for the littles after school each day. Because they are able to walk home from school as it’s at the end of our street, they come in “so cold, mom!” and I always have a crock pot brewing of yummy cocoa for them. This season we can’t wait to surprise them with their own Candy Santa Cocoa Stir Stick station and let them get creative with making fun sticks to stir (then eat!) their hot chocolate!

Putting these cute little guys together is so much fun and takes little supplies! You can bet we had a lot of empty wrappers of Hershey’s Kisses chocolates (aka Santa hats) before they even made it on top of the marshmallow! Hee hee! 

Cute Hot Cocoa Santa Stir Sticks tutorial! To make your own Candy Santa Cocoa Stir Sticks you’ll need:

Of course you can use ANY Hershey’s Kisses chocolates but we thought the Hershey’s Hugs and Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint chocolates were extra festive. Here’s the other Kisses varieties in case you want more looks for your Santa hats. 😉

  1. Stick paper straw (or candy cane) through the middle of a puff marshmallow.
  2. Add a circle of gel frosting around the top of the marshmallow.
  3. Stick Hershey’s Kisses  chocolate on top of the frosting.
  4. Dab frosting on top of the Hershey’s Kisses chocolate and plop mallow bit on top of the marshmallow.
  5. Add Santa face with edible pens.
  6. Dab more frosting on each mallow bit and make a beard then around the base of the Kiss.
  7. All done! Place in cocoa to use a stir stick or enjoy as is! 🙂
