What are some ideas for fun Christmas or Winter Party Treats?

Are you ready to make these Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Mug Cookies? Let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need…

  • Marshmallows – regular-sized – not giant
  • cookies – I used Keebler striped fudge cookies, but you could use Gingersnaps, sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, or any other cookie that sounds good to you for this treat
  • chocolate melts – light brown
  • mini candy canes
  • mini dehydrated marshmallows – Kraft calls them Mallow Bits
  • Optional – Christmas sprinkles

How do you make these Christmas Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Mug Cookie Treats?

  • use the directions on the chocolate melts the bag to melt the candy melts until smooth in a shallow bowl
  • set out a cookie for your treat to sit on top of
  • cut a mini candy cane at the base of the crook (the curved section) leaving 2 parts, the curved part, and a straight candy stick
  • push the curved part of the candy cane into the side of the marshmallow as a mug handle
  • use that handle to hold the marshmallow while you dip it into the chocolate – only covering the bottom and top of the marshmallow
  • place one end onto the cookie so the chocolate can act as  glue
  • next, push the other half of the candy can at a slight angle into the chocolate top – representing a candy stick coming out of your mug
  • add some dehydrated marshmallow bits to the melted chocolate
  • optional – use a toothpick to grab some melted chocolate and glue the candy sprinkle decorations onto the front of your mug
  • *hold the sprinkles in place until the chocolate has dried enough to set

How do you melt Chocolate Melts?

  • Using a glass microwave-proof bowl, pour your chocolate melts in and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir until smooth. If needed, microwave for an additional 30 seconds and stir until smooth. *Note – I like to use a silicone spatula to stir my chocolate with and I use wax paper to set it on when done

Should I store Chocolate in the refrigerator?

  • Chocolate treats that use chocolate melt as an ingredient tend to change in structure and looks. Chocolate will produce a “sugar bloom” which is basically the sugar crystallizing. If you don’t mind the little white specks in the chocolate, then I’d say go ahead and store it in the refrigerator. It will definitely keep longer.
