Hot Cocoa Gift

Super cute Hot Cocoa Gift idea with Homemade Hot Cocoa Recipe. PLUS, free tags on { }

Happy Saturday!

I’m happy to be back. I took a few weeks off to enjoy my little sister and celebrate Halloween.

My little sister’s name is Melody Jane, and she is CUTE!! She’s so small and I love her. 🙂

We also celebrated Halloween and I dressed up as Elsa. I saw my friend, Callie, and she was dressed up as Elsa too. There were lots of Elsas at Halloween. It was so fun, and now I’m excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Today’s tutorial is a Hot Cocoa Gift. We made Homemade Hot Cocoa and put it in a cute jar and attached this tag to make a great gift idea.

Do you love Hot Cocoa?? I do! We had some this week and it was so yummy. It had little tiny marshmallows, which are my favorite. I know this is a time where people like to give gifts, so this Hot Cocoa Gift is perfect for that.

Here is what you need to make it…


– Jar (we got ours for $3 in the Target Dollar Spot section)

– Hot Cocoa ingredients (below)

– Mini Marshmallows

Make your Hot Cocoa by pulsing in a blender the following ingredients:

3 cups Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
