Christmas is such a fun time of year! Choosing gifts can sometimes be overwhelming, but it can be fun too! I put together a few of these Hot Cocoa Gift Baskets with my homemade hot cocoa mix and they were a ton of fun. I love giving gifts like these because the recipient can make a cup of hot cocoa, put up their feet and enjoy a Christmas movie or game night with the family.
Here are the items I included in my Hot Cocoa gift basket:
- 2 holiday coasters
- 1 mason jar of homemade cocoa mix (recipe below)
- 2 packs of hand dipped cookies
- 2 peppermint spoons
- 2 small container filled with cocoa toppings
- paper straws
- mug (or two) ~ Target has some cute holiday mugs
Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix recipe:
- 10 cups of powdered milk
- 2 cups unsweetened cocoa
- 1 3/4 cups non-dairy creamer powder
- 5 cups of powdered sugar
Add all ingredients into large bowl, stir until combined. Store in airtight container. When making a cup of hot cocoa you will add 1/3 cup of the mix to 3/4 cup hot water. You can print this tag to include in the basket with the instructions for making a cup of hot cocoa.
I added some Stroopwafels dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with toppings. You can substitute with cookies or any other treats. Here is what I used to make these:
- 1 package of candy melts
- topping of your choice nuts, sprinkles, peppermint
- cello bags and ribbon
Add small containers of sprinkles, and mini marshmallows. You can also add the toppings into plastic ornaments for a really festive look.
