How to Draw a Christmas Hot Chocolate

Christmas is nearing!

And I love anything related to Christmas – it’s my favorite holiday.

This year, I thought I’d add multiple Christmas kawaii drawing tutorials.

All of these Christmas drawing ideas are for beginners and kids and they’re all step-by-step.

I’ve already done a lot of tutorials on Christmas already that includes Rudolph, A Christmas Gnome, A Christmas pudding, a Christmas tree with presents, and a Christmas tree with lights and a Christmas Guinea Pig.

But in this tutorial, I’ll teach you how to draw a Christmas Hot chocolate (with a candy cane and marshmallows) like this:

I am currently using an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to create my digital art.

But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or colored pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.

You can print out this tutorial if you’d like to have it on paper with you.

How to draw a Christmas Hot Chocolate – Step by step for beginners and kids

Let’s draw the mug first.

We are going to start with a simple “U” shape.

Next, we’ll draw the top of the mug – just draw a simple curve like this:

Now, I’ll draw the handle of the mug – I’m going to draw 2 C shapes on the side of the mug like this:

Now since this is a Christmas hot chocolate, I’m going to draw a Christmas tree on the cup – to draw a simple Christmas tree, just draw a triangle and a small stub underneath it.

Now, we can start drawing marshmallows. I’m going to draw one on the side inside the mug.

Next, we will draw a candy cane. I’m going to draw a quick cane shape on the side.

And then draw a bigger curve and complete the candy cane.

You can color it any color you want but for this illustration, I’m going to color it red and green!
