I had a blast Sunday night (truly!) making these hot chocolate cones for my husband's co-workers. The recipe actually tastes good and it looks adorable, too. It took me about 2 hours to make 33 of them. :) I was a bit exhausted (and covered in cocoa) when I finished so I quickly put tags together and labels on the back with the "to" and "from" information. And when I totalled all the costs it came to right under $1 per person. Not bad!
I got the idea here and used her recipe but with Special Dark Hershey's cocoa. Each cone has 6 Tbsp. plus 1/4 c. of semi-sweet chocolate chips and about 1/3 c. miniature marshmallows. I also bought a bag of mini twizzlers which were perfect for the "cherry on top." If I remember right, each batch of cocoa made about 22-24 servings (3 Tbsp. of mix per serving).
I ran out of a few ingredients so I sealed up the leftover mix and made another batch Monday night for the kiddos' Sunday School teachers. (This second time around my husband poured chocolate chips and marshmallows for me--so much faster!)
