Giving the gift of handmade goodies is one of my favorite things to do and this peppermint hot cocoa gift jar is so easy and so delicious! Everyone knows it can get pretty hectic around the holidays, but having a few handmade goodies can defiantly help relieve some to the stress. Plus, who doesn’t love a cup of delicious and creamy hot chocolate, I know my kids love it!
I am so excited to share that I am participating in this year’s Homemade Holiday Inspiration series with some talented bloggers! Each week, for the month of November, we will be inspiring you with recipes, decorating ideas, crafts, homemade gift ideas, and much more! Simply scroll to the bottom of the post to see some beautiful Holiday gift ideas! A huge thank you to Liz from Hoosier Homemade for organizing this amazing series.
Peppermint sticks crushed
Fill any size mason jar with the mix until it’s just over half full.
Add your mini-marshmallows followed by crushed peppermint than the chocolate chips.
You can get as creative as you want with the layers.
Print and attach the printable to the top of the mason jar lid.
Add a ribbon and they are ready to be handed out!
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 whip cream on top!

If you would like to print out instructions for making the hot cocoa, I have left the amount of mix needed blank, you can fill it in with a pen. That way if your mix calls for something different than mine you can still use this printable. Just click on the picture and download.
I hope this little Homemade Peppermint Hot Cocoa In A Jar encourages you to give something homemade this holiday season.
