Hot Chocolate Mix in a Jar (Easy & Budget Friendly Gift)

This year, we made Hot Chocolate Mix in a Jar for our neighbors and friends.  Just a little gift to warm people up during the holidays, without breaking the bank.

Here's how we did it:

1 Cup Powdered Milk
3 Heaping Tablespoons Dutched Cocoa Powder
3 Level Tablespoons Sugar
1/4 Mini Marshmallows

We mixed 5 batches at a time

2 Cups per Mason Jar.

YUM :)

I decorated the jar top with Christmas-y fabric and a raffia bow.

Make sure to include a card that tells your recipient how to make and enjoy their delicious treat!

"Mix 3 heaping Tablespoons (1/4 to 1/3 cup) cocoa with 8 to 10 oz of hot water.
Makes about 4 servings"
That's all there is to it!



  1. Great idea! I think I'll use it for some last minute gifts!

  2. Ooh, good idea! This is great for people who aren't really 'family' or are just hard to buy for.
