Hot Chocolate Stirrers

Cold days are filled with yummy, heartwarming treats at our home.  Soups, stews, baked goods and delicious homemade hot chocolate.  My boys love to stir their hot chocolate with a special treat, these hot chocolate stirrers are easy, delicious and add a subtle mint flavour to hot chocolate.  Perfect for a girls afternoon, a playdate or a Holiday Brunch.

hot chocolate stirrers supplies


  • Melt candy melts in a microwave safe bowl.
  • Pierce marshmallows with a knife to make a hole for the candy canes.
  • Dip marshmallows in melted candy melts, then dip in sprinkles until coated.
  • Let marshmallows harden then slide onto candy canes.
  • Hang from your favourite mug of hot chocolate, serve and enjoy!

These hot chocolate stirrers are great because you can make them ahead and just seal the marshmallows in a bag (to prevent them from getting stale) and you have a special treat for your family to enjoy.  I know that everytime I make them people are amazed at how great they look – hopefully they won’t realize how easy they are!

Does your family make hot chocolate stirrers?  What do include in yours?
