Hi friends!

We are CRAZY 4 COCOA!!  Cocoa the Mouse, that is :)….

If you’ve arrived here from Stephanie Wright’s blog, then you’re are in the right spot!  If not, I highly suggest you start back on the Sweet N Sassy blog so that you can find out about the fabulous prizes being given away by Cocoa and his team!

I have lots to share today… Let’s start with Cocoa himself!

Cocoa is so helpful when it comes to unwrapping presents under the tree!

And what’s a better way to warm up while waiting for Santa on a cold winter night?…. You got it… Cocoa!

I made these great little cocoa cones using disposable icing bags.   The bottom is filled with hot cocoa mix, then chocolate chips on top of that (separated by a cardstock circle), then a generous portion of mini marshmallows.  I tied it all up with some ribbon and a tag.  There are two sizes.  One is enough for two 12oz cups of cocoa and the smaller is just for one.

They make a nice pair, don’t you think? 🙂

Here are my details:

Stamps:  Sweet N Sassy’s Cocoa’s Gift and Cup of Cocoa

Papers: GP White, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Paper Studio dp

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, copics, white gel pen

Accessories: 1/2″ green satin ribbon, oval punch, scalloped oval punch, 1/2 pearls (red/gold), dimensionals, label nesties, Aleene’s fast tack glue,


Items needed for the cocoa cones:

Wilton’s disposable icing bags (12 oz)

Twist ties

Hot cocoa mix (I bought the large containers)

Mini Marshmallows

Chocolate chips

Circle nesties

ribbon and other embellishments as desired.


Now it’s time to send you on over to Stephanie Serrano’s blog.   I’m sure she has something to delight you!

In case you get lost along the way, here is a list of all the blogs involved in today’s hop:


Thanks so so much for stopping by!  I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit!!

    WOW, Holly…what a wonderful gift duo! That 3-D tree on the card is amazing and the icing cones filled with cocoa is such a great gift idea. I make my own hot chocolate mix and these would be a perfect little favor to give to friends and family over the holidays! Thanks for the awesome tip!

    Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous card in vivid red and green Holly – I love that 3-D tree and how brilliantly Cocoa and his present are colored. And your cocoa cones inspire me – I can see me doing this for a few people for a little Christmas surprise this week!
