“Compliments of Taste of Home. You need about 1 inch foil or paper cupcake cups ( these little suckers are SMALL compared to the regular sized cups). Can usually be found at a party or dollar store. You will also need a small flat never used paint brush or pastry brush. They say to add a dollop of whipped cream and then float on top of hot chocolate. I'm thinking that you could whip up a Butterscotch (or other) pudding and place inside or place sliced strawberries with whipped cream on top. Why not get even more creative and place maraschino cherries inside with a syrup and whipped cream. Let me know what you've done.”
