These Candy Cane Season hot cocoa favors are perfect for giving to co-workers or for your kids to take to class parties. You won’t believe how simple they are to make! Keep reading to learn how.
My youngest two daughters are in high school so making treats for class holiday parties are a thing of the past. Sniff! However, they do love giving out little treats to their friends on the last day of school before winter break. It has become a tradition to make these hot cocoa favors each year for my daughters to give to their friends.
This year, I used the Candy Cane Season stamp set to make the hot cocoa favors. I just love how they turned out. I have been sharing projects all week that I made with this stamp set.

Cut the paper
- Cut the cardstock (either Cherry Cobbler or Mossy Meadow) to 7-3/4″ X 5-1/2″.
- Cut (2) pieces of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper that are 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″.
- Cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock that is 1/2″ x 3-1/2″.
Assemble the hot cocoa favor base
- Place the long edge of the cardstock along the top edge of your scoring board. Score at 3-5/8″ and 7-1/4″.
- Use a bone folder or your fingernail to fold along both the score lines.
- Add Tear & Tape adhesive to the flap, remove the backing, and fold to the other edge to form a pouch.
All stamps are from the Candy Cane Season stamp set.
- Using Cherry Cobbler ink, stamp the candy cane outline and stripes on a scrap of white paper. A Stamparatus is helpful for lining up the stamps!
- Using Mossy Meadow ink, stamp to bow on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.
- Using Mossy Meadow ink, stamp the “Tis the Sweet Season” sentiment on the strip of Whisper White cardstock.
- Use the 2-3/8″ stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes die set to cut a circle from Whisper White cardstock.
- Use the 3″ scalloped circle from the Layering Circles die set to cut a circle from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
- Optional – use a corner rounder to round all the edges.
- Use a slot punch on the middle of the top edge to form a hole to add the ribbon later.
- Use the Banner Triple Punch on both ends of the strip of cardstock stamped with the sentiment.
- Use the Candy Cane Builder punch to cut out both the bow and candy cane.
- Add adhesive to one of the designer series paper pieces and adhere to the front of the pouch. Adhere the other piece to the back of the pouch.
- Use Mini Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the banner about 1/2″ from the bottom of the designer series paper.
- Adhere the Whisper White Circle to the Cherry Cobbler scalloped circle.
- Use Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the circle to the pouch above the banner.
- Use a mini glue dot to adhere the bow to the candy cane.
- Use Mini Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the candy cane to the circle.
- Cut a 15″ piece of gold trimmed ribbon and thread through the slot from front to back.
- Squeeze the ends of the pouch lightly to open slightly and push down the ribbon a little bit.
- Add the hot cocoa packet to the pouch, being sure to catch the ribbon. Push the hot cocoa packet all the way down into the pouch. Adjust the ribbon ends if necessary so they are both the same length.
- Tie a knot in the ribbon just above the top of the pouch. Trim the ends.
To pull the hot cocoa packet out, just pull up on the knot.
