Looking for a inexpensive gift to give this holiday season? Whether you need a gift for a mailman, teacher, cousin, sister, friend or children, this Hot Cocoa Mix is a fun way to warm up!
How Do You Make Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar?
If you already have jars on hand, you can totally layer this in a jar. Attach a tag to the gift recipient with how much water or milk to add so that they can dump the ingredients in and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa!
How Do You Make Hot Cocoa Mix Without Powdered Milk?
Have you seen my Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe? You can make this at home and is a great alternative to pre-packaged hot cocoa mix. Simply leave out the milk and vanilla extract, attach a tag letting the recipient know they should add 4 cups of milk and a teaspoon of vanilla extract! I actually have a printable already available, so go ahead and head on over to that recipe!
What You Need To Make a Hot Cocoa Mix Gift Ornament
- Large Plastic Clear Ornament

How to Make Hot Cocoa Mix Gift Ornament
Start by removing the top of you ornament and placing the funnel in the top.
Fill the ornament ⅓ of the way full with hot chocolate powder.
Remove the funnel and place mini marshmallows into the top of the ornament, filling it another ⅓ of the way.
Next do the same with your green and red M&M’s until the ornament is filled.
Take your gift tag and write a sweet message with your permanent marker. I chose ” baby it’s cold outside.”
Place your top back on the ornament and tie your bow around it.
Secure your gift tag to the ornament.
