One of the things we have been making for neighbours and friends for Christmas this year is ‘Cocoa in a Jar’. I’m quite into the ‘jar’ at the moment. This activity may in fact remind you of my ever favorite soup in a jar.
I found this idea here at one of my favorite printable party destinations.
It even comes with free printable gift tags and instructions!
It tastes divine too!
We had to make some first for ourselves, just to see if it tasted OK of course! Using a candy cane as a stirrer and leaving it in the mug…mmm… even better. I am a bit of sucker for hot chocolate.
You can vary the amounts to suit your jar size and add whatever ingredients you like, but mine has:
1/2 cup milk powder
1/2 cup cocoa powder (the unsweetened kind)
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup chocolate chips
2 crushed candy canes
enough green & white mini marshmallows to fill the jar
The recipient just mixes it all together, puts a spoonful or two in a mug and just adds hot water.
