Hot Cocoa Gift Set


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered milk
  • 1 cup dutch-processed cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch (helps make the cocoa smoother tasting)

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and stir with a wire whisk to combine.  Store in a large air tight container indefinitely in the pantry.  When ready to use fill mug 1/3 to 1/2 full with powder then add hot milk or water. About 2 Tablespoons of mix is needed per cup of hot milk or water.

Notes

Make the cocoa to taste. I like a lot less powder than my kids do 🙂

To make the gift you will need something to store the hot cocoa in (mason jar?!), mugs, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and candy canes. A little tray to store it all in is a really nice touch. I bought the jar, 4 white mugs, and the tray at the thrift store for $3.75 for everything! Shop around. If you can't find all the extras a pretty jar with cocoa and a decorative spoon will make a great gift to. Use what you have!
