In my mind this holiday season I had anticipated making homemade ornaments, cookies, body scrubs, and so much more.

Thanks to a wonderful, frugal, and smart friend (Annie) I have an adorable gift idea to share with you all!  This awesome kids DIY Christmas gift is called “Reindeer Hot Cocoa Cones”, and they are a  fun way to celebrate the season.

  5. what a cute idea!

  6. These are super cute!

  7. I love this idea. We may have to do this!! TY

  8. These are so cute and would be an awesome project for my younger daughter.

  9. OH Those ARE adorable! I would never have thought of those! Thank you!

  10. What a cute idea, and easy to put together. Looks great for party favors too! Thanks for sharing!

  11. I love this idea, it is so cute..

  12. Those are just too adorable! I never would have thought to use piping bags that way.

  13. That is so cute! I wish I had kids so we could do this!

  14. So crafty yet simple! We did homemade hot coacoa mix last year but this is way cuter!

  15. About how many packets of cocoa mix do u need to equal 2 cups?

  16. Love this! Am i understanding correctly that you put 10 packets of cocoa in each one?

  17. hey, i love the idea so much I’m making them for all of my employees but i wanted to add a tag with preparation instructions. how much water to use and such, do you have suggestions?

  18. Hi! I am making some but I was wondering what size piping bags you used? Thanks!!! :)

  19. Super cute.. I was wondering if it would be more frugal to use the big cans of powered cocoa measured out 2cups in each bag? Also how do u feel about a low temp hot glue gun

    • I think the hot glue would melt the bag myself :( I would use whatever is the most frugal way!! The big cans are the way to go! How about those sticky little circles? They sell them at the craft stores-that is a good idea too! Thanks! Amy :)

  20. These are so great! Just spent an hour and a half to make 29 for my students! They will love it! Next up, making some for my 5 year old’s kindergarten class. Thanks a bunch for this idea :-)

  21. I gave a similar set of instructions a year or two back only I made my bags as the cake decorating tubes are quite expensive which would up the price of the finished product. I also included a layer of chocolate chips (tiny ones are best, they melt faster) and the colored mini marshmallows. Now how to make your own bags. If you have a food sealing machine just trace the cone part onto the sealer’s plastic bags from corner to corner and you get a cone bag. They are not quite as strong but they do work. If you can find refill plastic bags without advertising they will look nicer but that is why I put a very large bow on the top with tails hanging down to cover the ad.I made so many of these over a period of 3-4 years that I actually got sick of making them. They sold like hotcakes so hope you have the same luck. Marlene

  22. P.S the food sealer machine is made for storing food so it should be safe. The machine has a wire across it and a air withdrawer thingy . The wire heats up and causes the plastic to seal itself, there is no glue involved. I do think if you used hot glue it would not work so well as the hot glue would melt the plastic bag and probably is not too good to ingest. good luck. Marlene
