Pinterest Project Tuesdays: Hot Chocolate Mix Gift

I love Hot Chocolate, it is my go to drink in the winter time; especially since I don’t drink coffee. I wanted to make little gifts for my Mother-in-law and Sister-in-laws for Christmas. I was watching Bethenny one morning and it was about Homemade Gifts.

IMG_5755One of the gifts was a Hot Chocolate Mix and I just knew I had to make something like this! Here is the pin that inspired me.

What you will need:

  • Hot Chocolate Mix
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Glass Mason Jar
  • Red Ribbon
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors
  • Red Letter Stickers
  • Snowflake Stickers
  • Red and White Paper Straws
  • Mini White Ornaments

IMG_5733The first thing you do is obviously wash your jars and lids. Make sure they are dry completely. I got my jars from Hobby Lobby. They did not come with lids but Wal-Mart sells Mason Jar Lids. Then fill each jar with 1 cup of Hot Chocolate mix.

Next cover the lid with ribbon. I used my left over ribbon from my Christmas Card Holder. Hot glue the ribbon to the lid.

IMG_5753According to the instructions, you can add 1-2 cups of hot water or milk to the jar, shake and drink. I will def be making these again.

I hope everyone has a Happy New Year! I can’t wait to see what 2014 brings since 2013 was so great!

Until next time!

Love,
