Tutorial: Reindeer Cocoa Cones

I wanted to share this little take-home treat that I sent with Tyson for his preschool Christmas party. These cute Reindeer Cocoa Cones were found via Pinterest and are quick, fun, and easy to assemble.

Who doesn't love a little hot cocoa this time of year?!

Reindeer Cocoa Cones by Mom-Made

To make your own, here's what you'll need:

  • Powdered hot chocolate mix
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Sprinkles
  • 12-inch disposable decorating bags
  • Brown or black pipe cleaners
  • Googly eyes
  • Small red pom poms
  • Instruction labels (optional - see below)

Fill each decorating bag with 1/3 cup of dry hot chocolate mix, followed by a generous 1/4 cup of mini marshmallows, 1 Tablespoon mini chocolate chips, and 1 teaspoon sprinkles (I used chocolate, but rainbow would've been more fun).

Twist each bag and secure with a brown pipe cleaner. Turn several times and then make the ends into the shape of antlers (or just give it your best attempt!).

Use hot glue or craft glue to attach the googly eyes and red pom pom nose.

The original version didn't include instruction labels, but I thought it would be a nice addition to the back. So here's what I added...

Feel free to download the JPEG file I created below (right click, Save Image As...) and paste it into your favorite label-making program. I used Microsoft Word to create labels using the Avery 5160 template.

Trim the excess plastic off the bags if you want (I used pinking shears), and you're done! Or go make 17 more, like I did. :-)

Enjoy your festive creations. The countdown to Christmas is ON!
