    TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

  • Cone Shaped bags were found at stores carrying cake decorating supplies.
  • The small no-tangle elastic hairbands for children work really well to secure bags.
  • If using a tin of cocoa, measure cocoa into a small measuring cup with lip for easier pouring.
  • Adult will need to hold bag when spooning in marshmallows so that they form a layer on top of the cocoa and don't slide down the side.
  • If you are making more than 4 of these, buying a can instead of individual packets will be less expensive
  • Small rubber hairbands work well in tying plastic bag and are less visible.
  • Suggested Note on Gift Tag: "Here is a gift that will warm you up. Just add some hot water, and stir into your favorite cup." In smaller print, add the directions from the bag or the tin.
