A gift of hot cocoa mix is always welcome, whether it’s a holiday token for the neighbors or a party favor. The girls and I made a big batch of hot chocolate mix as favors for our Pink Pig Party. It was an easy and quick project, from making the mix to dressing up your mason jar.

Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe

Here’s how I modified a cocoa mix recipe from Miss Daisy Cooks Light. I found the original too sweet and not rich enough, but the addition of vanilla flavored coffee creamer took care of that.
