KCC Hot Cocoa Cones by Jodie Fitz

Supplies Needed:

Price Chopper or Market 32 Paper Grocery Bag (or craft paper)

Double sided tape

Regular tape

Holiday wrapping paper



PICS Instant Hot Chocolate Packets

PICS Mini Marshmallows

PICS Snap and seal sandwich size bag

Tools Needed:





  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.

Optional:  Add a personal note and share with friends!
