Nothing says Christmas like Jar Gifts! haha! I just love the idea of putting all kinds of things in jars. Candles, flowers, salads and cookies! All make really pretty (and affordable) gifts!
This week I’m sharing my super easy DIY Hot Cocoa Mix in a Mason Jar over on Extraordinary Mommy. They are so cute and jar gifts are the perfect way to let your kids help out! You pretty much just measure out the ingredients and pour into jars. Add a cute gift tag and directions to whatever it is and – boom – you’re done! Love it!
This hot cooca recipe is so delicious that each time I make it – I pour the little bit that is left over into a jar and keep in my kitchen. I’ve found myself looking forward to a hot mug of cocoa every afternoon. hehe! I make it with steamy milk. I think that it gives it a rich taste that water alone can’t produce. You definitely CAN use water only, but if you’re looking for that coffee shop hot cocoa taste – add milk.
Double or triple this recipe to make up several jars to give as gifts to your mailman, custodians at school or neighbors! They’ll love you for it!
Head over to Extraordinary Mommy for the whole recipe!
Next week, I’m sharing my DIY Photo Keepsake Ornament on her site. It’s adorable! I’ll keep you updated when that posts!
