Naughty & Nice

{Handmade Christmas, part x}

Baby it's cold outside, and we've been out snowshoeing all morning {because one naughty little boy and girl broke into their Christmas presents a few days early}. So, while it would be nice to save this little bundle of naughty & nice hot cocoa stirrers to bring to the Carols & Carousing I'm co-hosting with Frances later today, I had to be really bad and break them out early for a cup of cocoa at home.

I made these with craft sticks {dollar store} and a green sharpie, which allows you etch in whatever names you see fit. In Hungary, they call a naughty boy Rosszcsont {Bad Bones}, and Andras stirrer said exactly that.

Give these with a batch of warm cocoa, mixed up ahead of time {milk + dutch cocoa + sugar, to taste}, and transfered to a glass milk bottle {mine come from Ronnybrook}. Tie with a bow and bring along to your cookie swap for instant hot cocoa that beats the stir and serve powdered kind by a landslide.
