  • Clear Disc Ornaments - as these will be holding food you want to make sure the ornaments are food safe
  • Hot Cocoa Mix
  • Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits - I had a hard time finding them but they are available on Amazon for only $1.50
  • Holiday Sprinkles, chocolate chips - any type of topping that will fit through the ornament opening
  • Funnel (optional but recommended)
  • Ribbon (optional)
  • Scissors for cutting ribbon
Glass Disc Ornaments

🦌Instructions

  1. Gather all your supplies.
  2. Remove the cap from the top of the ornament gently and set aside.
  3. Wash the ornaments with soap and water. Rinse well and allow to dry thoroughly.  I placed mine upside down on a drying rack to dry.
  4. Once the ornaments are dry, open one packet of hot cocoa mix and pour into the ornament.  This is your first layer. A funnel is not essential, but it makes the process much easier. If you don't have one on hand, you can always use a piece of paper rolled into a cone shape. I kept the ornament in an upright position by placing it up against a glass ramekin but anything you can lean it against will work to hold it still.
  5. Next, add your sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc.
  6. Top with mini marshmallows.
  7. Replace ornament cap.
  8. Cut your ribbon into pieces and tie each ribbon in a bow at the top. You can also add other decorations such as small bells or tiny pinecones to make them look even more festive!
  9. Add a gift tag if desired!

You can use these as gift tags on packages or as a gift in and of itself.  You can also add a small tag to the ornament with directions - add 8 ounces of hot milk, stir and enjoy!
