Hot Cocoa Cones

Looking for an easy craft to make with the kids?  Check out my Hot Cocoa Cones!  They are easy to make and fairly inexpensive.  These cones are a fun homemade gift from the kitchen that the kids can make to share with their friends.  They even make fantastic classroom gifts or secret Santa items.

We used to make these for my daughter’s classmates when she was younger and they were always a hit.  There’s something a little extra special when it’s homemade and it’s useful!  Kids love making and sipping on their hot cocoa, so it’s the gift that keeps giving.

Here are all of the directions for you to cut, measure, roll and stuff so that you can share.

Materials

  • Large Paper Grocery Bag (or craft paper)
  • Double sided tape
  • Holiday wrapping paper
  • Cellophane
  • Ribbon
  • Instant Hot Chocolate Packets
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Snap and seal sandwich size bag

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Bowl

Instructions

      1. Create a template on the paper bag or craft paper by flipping a bowl upside down and tracing it with a pencil.  The bowl should be a medium sized bowl, approximately 8 “ in diameter.  It does not have to be exact.

    2. Using scissors, cut out the paper circle.  Note: You need a paper bag circle for every cone you create; it provides the stability to the cone.

    3.  Lay the paper bag circle on top of wrapping paper, trace a circle and cut it out. Attach the two circles together with double sided tape.

    4. Draw a pencil circle in the center of each circle. 

    5.  Cut out a pie shaped triangular piece like in the video.  It will look almost like a Pac-Man character.

    6.  Roll the circle by overlapping the cut pieces until it forms a cone shape.  Keep it in position by placing a double-sided piece of tape where the overlap pieces come together. 

    7.  Roll the hot chocolate packet and insert it into the cone.

    8.  Fill the snap and seal bag about a third of the way full with mini marshmallows.  Release the air before sealing it.  Roll the empty end and tuck it into the cone.  Tape it into place.

    9.  Cut a square piece of clear cellophane.  Place the pointed end of the cone in the center, bring the cellophane up around the cone and tie the top off with a ribbon.
