Seasonal Sweet Treats
There is nothing better than warming up with a delicious cup of hot chocolate, after a cold day of sledding or shoveling. For a simple and easy holiday favor, take a hot chocolate packet and place inside a mug. Garnish by tying around a tasty candy cane. When choosing a mug, opt for a holiday themed mug or purchase white mugs from a craft store, and use a sharpie to personalize it for each guest. If you opt for DIY hot chocolate favors, use a mason jar and layer contents of hot chocolate powder, marshmallows, then top with chocolate chips and peppermint chips.
