DIY Hot Cocoa Mix in a Mason Jar


Homemade hot cocoa mix is a great make-ahead Christmas present. You can give it as a gift all on its own, or pair it with other yummy treats. Arrange it in a gift basket with a mug and sweet treats. A canning jar is perfect for packaging edible gifts like hot cocoa mix. Use a colorful ribbon and matching ornament (preferably a flat ornament) for a festive touch. Use chalkboard canning lids to label them by flavor. You can add other things like toffee bits, candy cane crumbs or candy baking chips to the mix. You can also add in spices like cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Simply whisk the ingredients together. This recipe makes enough for 5 cups of dry mix, so make one for a friend and keep some for yourself!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa (Dutch-process preferred)
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • optional - 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or more to taste
  • optional - add baking chips like butterscotch or mint to the top
