You can make these a dozen different ways!  If you are a little stressed out with minimal time on your hands, they sell pre-made hot chocolate at the stores.  If you are feeling a little adventurous you can make your own hot chocolate mix, I have linked my favorite recipe below that my mom always made!


Once you have decided on your mix it’s time to package the jars.

Fill any size mason jar with the mix until it’s just over half full.
Add your mini marshmallows followed by crushed peppermint then the chocolate chips.
You can get as creative as you want with the layers.

When ready to use your hot chocolate mix, remove the marshmallows, peppermint, and chocolate chips from the top of the jar.  Add the amount of the mix that the recipe calls for to 1 cup of boiling water or milk in a mug. Stir until completely dissolved.  Top with marshmallows, peppermint, and chocolate chips, and enjoy! You could even add a little whipped cream on top!
