The Best Hot Cocoa Combo You’ll Ever Find!

To begin, gather these easy to find supplies:

To begin, poke a marshmallow onto each end of your straws.  Make sure it’s on good and tight, you don’t want it to fall off while you are dipping it!

If you don’t have any straws, you can also use popsicle sticks, lollipop sticks, or even plastic forks.

Next, prep your toppings.  You can choose anything you would like to top your DIY hot cocoa marshmallow dunkers.  I choose crushed candy canes, mini chocolate chips, and sprinkles.

To melt your chocolate, place it in a microwavable bowl and heat it up in 30 second increments.  Stir it up until it is nice and smooth.
