Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar, Just in Time for Valentine's Day Giving!
1 C. granulated sugar
1 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 C. powdered milk
1/2 C. mini chocolate chips
1/2 C. miniature marshmallows
1/2 t. salt
Layer 1/2 C. granulated sugar in the bottom of each jar you are making. Next add 1/2 c. cocoa powder, 1 C. powdered milk, 1/2 c. cocoa, 1/2 C. granulated sugar, 1/2 t. salt, 1/2 C. mini chocolate chips, and 1/2 C miniature marshmallows.
Gently lift the jar and tap it several times on the counter to tamp down the ingredients and then top off again with additional marshmallows. Top with a seal and screw on the band. Cut about a 5" square of red or other fabric and remove the band. Lay the fabric atop the seal evenly and screw on the band. Add a ribbon around the screw top and a card.
I am going to make up another jar and gussy them up a bit and I will add that photo later. For now I just wanted to get this idea out there for anyone who might like to give it a try. I LOVE food gifts in jars! To receive them as well as to give them.
