Hot Cocoa: Mason Jar Christmas Gift on Pinterest

December 07, 2020 1 min read

Two Mason jars are filled with the ingredients to make hot cocoa, including marshmallows and peppermint.

A quick scan of Pinterest will show you just how many uses there are for Mason jars these days, but one of our favorites will always be ready-to-make hot cocoa.

It’s gorgeous, especially when decorated with a few charming details, and makes a lovely gift for just about anyone. 

Mason Jar Food Gift Recipe

To make your hot cocoa kit, you’ll need the following:

  • A 16-ounce Mason jar
  • 4 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 8 Tablespoons powdered milk
  • ½ Cup mini marshmallows
  • ½ Cup chocolate chips, either regular, white or both
  • ½ Cup crushed peppermint

To assemble, combine the cocoa powder, sugar and powdered milk and pour into the Mason jar. Next, add the chips, marshmallows and peppermint in layers.

Decorating Your Edible Gift

Make your gift look even more darling by adding a bit of crocheted lace and decorative buttons. Don’t forget a gift tag with instructions to add 3 tablespoons of the mix to each 8 ounces of water.

Instead of paper or a gift bag, use JarJackets to “wrap” your Mason jars. Sure, they look cute, but they also protect the glass from bumps and slips. And when the hot cocoa mix is all gone, the jars and JarJackets make the perfect combo for taking smoothies, coffee or even lunch to work (JarJackets are dishwasher and microwave safe).

Even better, JarJackets are 100 percent non-toxic and made from earth-friendly materials.
