Sweet Hot Treat!

Sweet and simple gift for Fall. I added higher end hot cocoa. I put about a dozen? marshmallows in our 2x8 treat tube cello bags and folded it in half and sealed it. I am not sure why I didn't think of this sooner, like years ago, but I just used one of our standard card cello envelopes for the treats. I always have several packages of them lying around my stamp room, as I use them for my card exchange cards when I swap cards. 
I made 16 of the toppers in about an hour. I think it took more time to put the marshmallows in the cello bags. Those little devils were wanting to pop all over the place.
