  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy

Preparation

In a clear mason or decorative jar, layer powdered milk, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, chocolate chips, and peppermint candy.

notes

  • This mix will fill a 1-quart jar (12 servings), but if your containers are different sizes, just keep the ratio of ingredients constant.
  • On the back of the tag, write: “Mix contents in a large bowl. For each serving, place 1/3 cup cocoa mix in a mug and stir in 1 cup boiling water. Store remaining mix in airtight container.”
