DIY Hot Cocoa Favor

On this chilly fall afternoon, nothing sounds better than a nice warm cup of hot cocoa. So I got to thinking, hot cocoa would also make a great fall wedding favor! Here is an easy DIY that's guaranteed to warm the hearts of all in attendance!

Here's what you will need:
  • Hot chocolate mix (Store bought or if you really want to be ambitious, give this DIY a try!)
  • Marshmallows (Store bought or if you really want to be ambitious, give this DIY a try!)
  • Powdered sugar
  • Heart cut out
  • Mason jars 
  • Pretty ribbons, tags, and packaging (Get creative)


1) Cut marshmallows in half horizontally. Then using heart cut out, press through the center of the marshmallows.

2) Because the marshmallows will be sticky, dip the sticky side of each marshmallow into the powdered sugar. This will keep them from sticking to the bag upon packaging.

 3)  Package marshmallows in bag and fill mason jar with hot cocoa mix.

4) Lastly, creatively decorate each mason jar!

  1. Utterly adorable! What a genius idea to use cookie cutters on the marshmallows! These would be sweet for a hostess gift too!

  2. How much hot cocoa mix do you put in each jar?

  3. Susan,

    Depending on the size Mason jar you decide to go with, I recommend filling the jar fully. Ultimately the decision is yours! Have fun and enjoy! :)

  4. Those are sooo lovely! I would love to link to this in my next Wedding Favor Roundup if you didn't mind.
