For the stirrers I just bought a bag of the big marshmallows, some milk chocolate chips, candy canes and christmas sprinkles.
In a microwave safe bowl melt your chocolate chips in 30 minute increments, stirring after each one. While chocolate is melting stick your straws into each marshmallow. Throw some candy canes in a bag and take out your frustrations on them with a rolling pin, crushing them until they are pretty small. After the chocolate is melted roll your marshmallow in the chocolate and then the coating of your choice. Then set on a piece of parchment paper to harden.
Don't these look YUM!?
After the chocolate has hardened and they aren't ooey gooey anymore, bag them up in a cute bag and tie them up with cute ribbon. Give them away with your favorite hot chocolate.
Here's mine all done. I put my Christmas cards on the front of a couple of them. How cute is that?! My great friend, Candis, at C &C Paperie made them for me. She is so talented! If you want to check out her work, go HERE. :o)
So glad I got them done quickly. Thanks to my sweet boys. Check out this face!!! I could just kiss it right off!!
Here's wishing you a Merry MERRY Christmas! We love and appreciate all of you!! Have a fun and safe Holiday!
