Who doesn’t likes a cup of hot chocolate in the winter!?! My girls absolutely love hot chocolate! We drink it a lot during the winter season. It is so delicious specially with mini marshmallows on top. Mmm mmm good! Here is a great Christmas gift idea you can make in a jar and give it to your favorite neighbor or place it in the stocking.

HOW TO MAKE HOT CHOCOLATE:
FIRST WAY: You can mix all ingredients and place 1/3 cup of the hot chocolate mixture into a LITTLE jar. To make one serving add 1 cup of hot water or milk. Another way: Get 3 BIGGER jars with lids and layer 1/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/3 cup powdered milk, pinch of salt, little handful of chocolate chips and marshmallows. That will make 3 servings in one jar. Make sure to write a note to mix 1/3 cup of hot chocolate mixture with 1 cup of hot water or milk. Enjoy!
