hot cocoa {in a jar}


We made this at our church craft night, too!
You can’t go wrong with homemade cocoa!


You’ll need:
pint size jar
1 1/2 cups nonfat dry milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tbs. baking cocoa
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows

In a large bowl, combine dry milk, sugar and cocoa.

Then layer the ingredients as follows:
bottom layer: half of dry mixture
middle layer: 1/2 cup of marshmallows
top layer: remaining milk mixture

Close jar and add fabric, ribbon & recipe card that says:

Measure 1/2 cup cocoa mix into mug.
Stir in 1 cup warm water or milk.
