One of my family’s favorite things to enjoy during the cold winter months is hot cocoa! It’s one of the first things Kate asks for when she gets home from school, and it’s become an afternoon ritual for us to catch up on our day over a mug of hot chocolate…she enjoys hers with a candy cane and marshmallows, while I opt for marshmallows and crushed peppermint sprinkles! A few years ago, we started making our own hot cocoa mix. It’s soooo much better than the store bought mixes in our opinion, and makes a great Christmas gift too! Today, I want to share our homemade hot cocoa recipe!
- 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
- 1 Cup Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 2 1/2 Cups Powdered Milk
- 1 Teaspoon. Salt
- Mix ingredients well, then store in an airtight container.
Doesn’t it look delish?
If you are making it to give as a gift, you can add one of these cute little Chalkboard Mason Jar Labels to the top for a little added touch! I also like to tie a candy cane and a sprig of rosemary onto my jar lid using red and white baker’s twine. I think it just gives it a lovely touch! To download and print the labels above, click HERE! Simply right click the image to save it once you click over. The image above will not print out the correct size.
Now, who wouldn’t want to receive such a sweet gift?
This hot cocoa recipe would look super cute as a Mason Jar Snowman too!
Yesterday, I shared this fabulous recipe for Peppermint Sugar Scrub…one more simple holiday gift idea!
I hope you and your family have a beautiful holiday season!
