These reindeer hot chocolate cones are very easy to assemble, but there’s a trick you need to know before putting them together.

 

Assembly Directions

 

When you pour the hot chocolate mix into the piping bags, the hot chocolate mix may stick to the sides of the bag. To avoid this problem, make a little funnel with a piece of waxed paper and place it in the top of the piping bag. Then pour the contents of the hot chocolate packet through the funnel and into the piping bag.

After you pour the hot chocolate in the piping bag, place 2 tablespoons of mini chocolate chips in the bag on top of the hot chocolate, gently patting them down.

 

Place 1/3 cup of mini marshmallows on top of the mini chocolate chips.

 

Gently twist the top of the piping bag right above the mini marshmallows. Fold one of the brown pipe cleaners in half and twist around the hot cocoa cones. Bend the pipe cleaner to look like reindeer antlers.

The last step is to use the hot glue gun to glue on the wiggle eyes and the red pom pom for the nose. See photos for approximate placement.

 

I like to make each reindeer a little different just to give them more variety. Just use a little dot of hot glue, or you may melt the piping bag and create a small hole in the bag.

 

That’s it! These easy DIY reindeer hot cocoa cones also make a fun party favor for holiday parties. Make extra for when you need a quick gift for a neighbor or co-worker.
