dunkable marshmallow packaging

 

Remember these dunkable marshmallows? Or, marshmallows on a string for Valentine’s? Well, Jessica left a great question in the comments: do I have any packaging ideas? It was such a great question, I think it deserves a post.
Packaging. Hmmm. I would definitely package with hot cocoa mix. Here are some ideas:
in a mug.
SweetnLo also left a comment with a link to this mug on etsy. These would be great packaged in a mug with the strings over the side, then wrapped in a large cellophane bag with ribbon.
in a mason jar.
Of course I have to come back to mason jars. I love mason jars. I put some cocoa mix in a cellophane favor bag (found at Michaels) to keep things tidy. Put the cocoa at the bottom of the mason jar, then put the marshmallows on top with the strings hanging out the side.

 

in favor bags.
Find small cellophane favor bags at the craft store (I cut off the top to make them more shallow), put one or two marshmallows in the bag (the twine can get tangled, so I’d stick with no more than two), then tie closed with a piece of ribbon above the marshmallow. Let the string and paper hearts dangle outside the bag. Package with a tin of cocoa.

in bakery boxes.
I had these see-through bakery boxes on hand that I purchased, also at Michaels. The handy dividers allow you to package packs of cocoa, the marshmallows and candies. Tie closed with the same baker’s twine used to thread the marshmallows.
