  • 1 cup instant hot cocoa mix
  • 16 large marshmallows

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine 1 cup milk, chocolate chips and cocoa mix. Cook and stir over low heat until chips are melted. Stir in remaining milk; heat through.

MY REVIEW

Very cute idea! For those that are confused about the lollipop sticks, that not only keeps the 2 eyeballs together, but prevents them from flipping over due to the weight of the candy. Without the stick, they would fall forward into the hot cocoa.

VERY cute idea - had enough details that one should be able to make it without issues. Some suggested other candies, but need to remember that some candies' colors may bleed into the marshmallow... which may or may NOT be desirable.

We got a good chuckle out of this great idea!
