Hot Cocoa Gift Jars
Author: Holly
  • 5 C. dry powdered milk
  • 1 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 C. powder sugar
  • 1 C. powder coffee cream, original/regular flavor
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch to prevent sticking
  • *Nestle Toll House Holiday Baking (contains red, brown and green semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • *green & red sprinkles
  • *Small glass jars
  1. Combine the dry ingredients, mixing well.
  2. Add about 1/4 cup of hot cocoa mix to the bottom of the each jar and allow it to settle. If you are unsure of the size of your jar, I would fill 3/4 of it with homemade cocoa mix and then fill the rest of the way with ‘extras’.
  3. Add in the green and red chocolate chips and a few of the ren & green christmas sprinkles.
  4. *Each each is about 1 serving serving when added to 8-10 oz of hot water or warm milk.
