And I found a recipe from Martha that I could use in my next Candy Corn project.
I have made cocoa cones for Christmas with the marshmallows and peppermint and so I thought, why not make some for Halloween. You know, Cute Candy Corn Halloween!
Here's the recipe Martha uses~
- 3 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 1/4 cups cocoa
- 1 tablespoon table salt
- Whole milk for serving
- In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.
- For individual servings, pour 1 cup whole milk into a microwave-safe mug, and microwave on high just until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. For a larger batch of cocoa, warm the milk in a saucepan set over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the milk boil; as it warms, stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.
(I don't use as much salt!)
I think I came up with a cute way to package these. I found some cone shaped bags at Hobby Lobby and filled them up with the cocoa. Then added some mini marshmallows and candy corn. See, cute huh?
And I really loved the bows!
Please pretend that there is no cocoa powder on the marshmallows. I really didn't want to remake them just for the photo!
