This delicious hot cocoa mix is probably the simplest way to create a unique, personal, and inexpensive gift.

A hot cocoa mix literally takes about five minutes to prepare. We used mason jars, purchased at any grocery store, and a decorative corner paper punch, purchased at Michaels, for our homemade tags. I love that this cocoa mix makes a thoughtful, and delicious, gift on its own or as an addition to any Christmas gift basket.
