DIY Wedding Challenge 2010: Hot Cocoa Favors


Courtesy of PWer jeslynn02:

*I just updated my bio with this tutorial, so I wanted to pass it along. These turned out better than I ever could have imagined, and we even had a few guests ask us where we bought them. It was so exciting to tell them that I made them all!*



After searching and searching, I finally found these Hot Cocoa Vials and knew they'd be perfect for our winter, wedding. Everything was perfect until I priced everything out and found out they'd be around $1 per favor, which is way more than I wanted to spend...So the search continued.



Then I found Hot Cocoa Cones...








PERFECT! I found several different tutorials on how to make them, so I set out to make our own. I was able to make our favors for less than $.40 each and in under 10 steps! (Once I get our pro-pics back I'll show a good professional picture of these!)





Cast of Characters (to make 150 cones)



  • (3) 100, 12" Disposable Decorating Bags (bought these from Michaels using their 40 and 60% off coupons - regularly $19.99)

  • (2) Nesquick chocolate powder (we got ours from Costco for around $6)

  • (2) 75 teeny, tiny hair ties ($5)

  • (4) Marshmallows (from Walmart, $1 each)

  • yarn (Michaels for $2.50)

  • favor tags



Total spent: (around) $56. We made 150, so they came out to around $.37 each!








Step 1: Cut decorating bags around 6.5"








Step 2: Fill bag with 2 tablespoons (or whatever your chocolate powder suggests) with chocolate:








Step 3: Use the teeny, tiny hair tie to close off the chocolate. (You may need to cut the access bag after tying it off. The picture below, for example, should be cut so there's just about a 1/2 inch of bag showing after the hair tie.)








Step 4: Insert chocolate filled cone into another decorating bag; make sure seams line up.





Step 5: Scoop out a 1/4 cup of marshmallows and poor into decorating bag on top of the chocolate cone.








Step 6: Tie a piece of ribbon, yarn, or string above the marshmallows. You need to make this tight so the marshmallows don't dry out. I tied it into two knots:








Step 7: After string is secure around bag, add your favor tage and tie it into a pretty bow








Step 8: Reapeat as many times as necessary
