The next homemade gift I made were Peppermint Hot Chocolate Stirrers. This is really a very inexpensive gift but it is still homemade and very thoughtful for a any hot chocolate lover. I love peppermint so this was a winner in my book.

First you get plastic coffee stir sticks and put the marshmallow on one end this is the stirrer. I found the stir sticks I used on the paper aisle at Walmart. They were next to regular straws and napkins and such. I think I paid $2-3 for a box of 250!

I melted about half a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips in the microwave. I microwaved them for 2 minutes (stirring every 30 seconds) to get it smooth and melted.

Then crush up peppermints or candy canes (I used my magic bullet) or if you want to use sprinkles do that too.

Roll the dipped choclolate marshmallow in the sprinkles or crushed peppermint then let it dry on a waxed paper. After you are all done put them in the fridge to harden for about 10 minutes ( I actually left mine in for an hour)

I then got mugs for a less then a dollar at Wal-Mart and I got a box of hot chocolate for .88 cents and packaged it up. I put some extra mini candy canes at the bottom of the mug to give the mug some filling.
