So ready, set, go . . . let’s start the gift making this holiday season!
DIY Hot Cocoa in a Jar
makes 4 cups
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons sugar (*I used Sucunat which is a less refined sugar)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cinnamon stick
In a small glass jar, layer the cocoa, sugar, chocolate chips and top with cinnamon stick.
Make a handmade label which says, “Place all contents of jar into a small saucepan and add 4 cups of milk. Gently simmer until everything melts and is warm. Drink . . . YUMMY!
So why not whip up a whole line of glass jars and let the hot cocoa gift giving begin. In my opinion, a super delicious treat equals a super delicious gift! Sometimes the littlest gifts can leave the most heartfelt feeling.
To giving a little gift to say “happy holidays!” . . . one DIY Hot Cocoa in a Jar gift at a time! Hugs, M.
