how to make hot cocoa marshmallow stirrers
you will need:
*I prefer Americolor Gourmet Writers or FooDoodlers Fine Line pens. Buying the sets is best, but you will only need blue, brown, black and red.
step one: skewer your marshmallow
Break off the hook part of the candy cane and stab the marshmallow with the broken end. You can make a hole first with a skewer or toothpick if you like.
step two: draw your designs
Follow the instructions below to draw the designs. Or, make your own. A snowman face would also be cute. Or write “dunk me.”
how to draw a snowflake:
1. with a blue pen, draw and “X”
2. draw a line through the “X”
3. add “V”s and dots to the spokes as desired
how to draw a cup of cocoa:
1. draw and fill a brown oval
2. outline a black circle around the oval, leaving some white space at the top
3. draw the rest of the mug
4. draw the handle (two backwards “C”s)
5. draw the steam (curlycues)
how to draw brr:
1. um, write “brr” with red

I love your marshmallow art. I remember seing it for the first time a maybe a year ago. This is such a good idea. I love to use candy canes as lollipop sticks. I made some caramel popcorn balls and put a candy cane stick and have myself a lollipop.

Last year there seemed to be more designs for xmas to put on marhmellows. I remember a deer or moose and a couple of words. I need those is there some way to get them? Thanks
Hi Marge, Hmm, I didn’t have those last year. But that’s a great idea for a new post! If I get a chance, I’ll try and get something new up on the blog! Thanks so much!
This is a really cute idea. I think I would leave the hook on the top of the candy cane though. Then you could hook the cane over the edge of your mug.
