Candy Cane Cocoa Stirrer

Take any ordinary hot cocoa or coffee to the next level with these fun cocoa stirrers! Simply stir your hot beverage with the homemade stirrer, and let the creamy chocolate, marshmallows and peppermint melt right in for a peppermint hot chocolate or peppermint mocha. Wrap them up in a clear plastic bag with ribbon, and place them inside a festive mug with a packet of hot cocoa for a fun Holiday gift!

You will need
  • Candy canes
  • Melted chocolate chips or candy melts of your choice (Dark, semi-sweet, milk, white, red...)
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Fun holiday themed sprinkles


Melt chocolate according to package. Break off curved part of candy cane so it is just a rod (or leave it on). Holding the unbroken edge of the candy cane, dip and roll in melted chocolate so it covers the candy cane completely, leaving about 1" uncovered for a handle. While chocolate is still wet, stick mini marshmallows all around the candy cane and let dry. Take the remaining chocolate and drizzle over the marshmallow, adding sprinkles or colored sugars to the chocolate drizzle white it is still wet.

Stir into your favorite hot cocoa or coffee and enjoy!
