I love to give gifts but it gets expensive when you have so many people you want to give to. This is an inexpensive gift idea you can give to lots of friends! A way to show you care without breaking the bank 🙂 Hot chocolate ice cream cones. Who doesn’t love hot chocolate especially with marshmallows and sprinkles!

1/2 cup hot chocolate (you can find this in tubs opposed to the little packets)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup sprinkles, m&ms, or any other small festive candy
1/4 cup marshmallows
Icing piping bags
Small clear hair ties

First you take one icing bag and fill it with your hot chocolate mix. Then use a hair tie to seal the hot chocolate. Put the whole hot chocolate filled bag inside another icing bag. (You do this so the hot chocolate doesn’t mix with other ingredients.) Then you should have what looks like a cone and now you need the toppings! Add the chocolate chips into bag, then the sprinkles or candy, and last the marshmallows. Secure with a hair tie. Add a cute ribbon to finish it off. What I love about this is that you really could do this for any season just use seasonal colored sprinkles or candy. Enjoy!!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
