My apologies for NOT posting anything yesterday. It was a chaotic day at work and I lost track of time. This past weekend was crazy! We had a full schedule with holiday parties and meeting with our wedding vendors. So, I didn't have time to work on any wedding DIY projects, but this one is I will definitely do. Since our wedding is in the winter, we wanted to make something warm for our guests to take home. I found this great idea on Wedding Bee.
What You Need: (to make 150 cones)
- (3) 100, 12" Disposable Decorating Bags (bought these from Michaels using their 40 and 60% off coupons - regularly $19.99)
- (2) Nesquick chocolate powder (we got ours from Costco for around $6)
- (2) 75 teeny, tiny hair ties ($5)
- (4) Marshmallows (from Walmart, $1 each)
- yarn (Michaels for $2.50)
- favor tags
Total spent: (around) $56. We made 150, so they came out to around $.37 each!
Step 1: Cut decorating bags around 6.5"
Step 2: Fill bag with 2 tablespoons (or whatever your chocolate powder suggests) with chocolate:
Step 3: Use the teeny, tiny hair tie to close off the chocolate. (You may need to cut the access bag after tying it off. The picture below, for example, should be cut so there's just about a 1/2 inch of bag showing after the hair tie.)
Step 4: Insert chocolate filled cone into another decorating bag; make sure seams line up.
Step 5: Scoop out a 1/4 cup of marshmallows and poor into decorating bag on top of the chocolate cone.
Step 6: Tie a piece of ribbon, yarn, or string above the marshmallows. You need to make this tight so the marshmallows don't dry out. I tied it into two knots:
Step 7: After string is secure around bag, add your favor tag and tie it into a pretty bow
Step 8: Repeat as many times as necessary
