Hot Chocolate Mason Jars

There’s nothing more comforting than a warm cup of cocoa at the end of a frosty winter day! This mix is a great gift for just about everyone on your list and requires no baking! Simple, fast, and delicious.


2 cups powdered milk
¾ cups granulated sugar
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Optional: ½ cup non-dairy creamer*
Optional: mini marshmallows, crushed candy canes, and/or chocolate chips

*The creamer allows your gift recipient to mix the cocoa with warm water rather than warm milk. If you decided to leave this ingredient out, be sure to write up the recipe tag accordingly!


  1. Measure out each ingredient, one at a time, and pour into a mason jar or container of your choosing. 
  2. For some additional seasonal decoration, you can add mini marshmallows, crushed candy canes and/or chocolate chips to the top.
