How to Make the Spiced Cocoa Mix

Mix Special dark chocolate by Hershey®, to make a rich chocolate flavor, add sugar, confectioners sugar, cinnamon and all spice with instant non fat milk and non dairy creamer.   Stir together and place in plastic zip lock baggie.

Create a cute package with mini chocolate cups filled with tiny marshmallows.  Mini cupcake liners are coated with dark chocolate and filled with mallows after cups are removed from paper liners.  They float perfectly on top of hot chocolate. Watch them melt right before your eyes while the mallows float on top.

The container can be glass or anything that will seal well.  I used a quart paint can purchased from Lowe’s. The clean can was covered with scrapbook paper and snowflake stickers  Pretty simple and cute. Package the cups in a cellophane baggie or other small box.
