my mom always made something like this, but with melted almond bark and the little pretzels- same concept though, salty and sweet. This actually looks a little less messy (since you have a handle attatched and dont have to fish it out with a spoon). What a brilliant idea! Getting antsy for the holidays.....

Ooh, I have to make these.  I always try to find something really cute and neat to make for holidays.  A couple years ago it was marshmallow snowmen, with candy for his face and pretzel sticks for arms.......they got really hard though, I guess they weren't sealed very well  Embarrassed   Plus they had to be left out at the christmas party, and probably hardened in like five minutes. 

These are cute though.  A lot better than just exchanging gift cards w/ the people who are so hard to buy for (who are actually too lazy to get ANYone something other than a giftcard).   I love the crushed candy cane ones.

I've done the same sort of thing but with candy canes, I dipped the lower portion in white chocolate, than used some colored sugar. When guests came over and I served hot chocolate or coffee, I gave a candy cane to them to use as a spoon.

Homemade cocoa?  There is such a thing?  Do tell!  Seriously, I never knew it was possible to make your own cocoa mix.  Can anyone enlighten me?  I love your idea, melcia!  I've been doing little gift bags like this for aquaintances for the last few Christmases, but homemade cocoa would be a great new twist!

Yeah! Cocoa mix is a great gift. I like to add crushed candy canes for a minty Christmas flavor! Here's some recipes..

Great idea!  They would make a great set with dipped spoons for coffee.  I'm giving away tea bags, tea cups, dipped spoons, and probably these now... Smiley
