I love giving neighbor gifts during Christmastime and this peppermint hot cocoa mix in a jar is so quick and easy! You could even create an assembly line with your family and put them together. (Although depending on your kids ages, you may want to do it yourself.) You’ll find the full tutorial for creating this simple (and yummy) gift in a jar below.

How to Make Peppermint Hot Cocoa Mix

First, gather your jars. You will need to use PINT jars. Make sure they are clean and dry so that you don’t have ingredients sticking on the inside of the jar and messing up your pretty layers.

Next, gather your ingredients. You will need the following:

  • mini marshmallows
  • mini chocolate chips
  • crushed candy canes
  • cocoa powder
  • sugar

*PRO TIP* Crush the candy canes in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. I have also see pre-crushed candy canes which would make assembly even easier.

Now it’s time to assemble the hot cocoa mix. Starting at the bottom, layer the ingredients in this order:

Layer 1: 1/3 cup sugar

Layer 2: 1/3 cup cocoa powder

Layer 3: 3 candy canes, finely crushed

Layer 4: 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Layer 5: 1/2 cup mini marshmallows

*PRO TIP* To prevent spills and ensure even layers, use a wide mouth funnel. If you don’t have one, you can make one out of paper by rolling it and taping it in place.

Once you’ve finished adding the marshmallows, seal the jar.

Ideas for Decorating the Jar

To make the jar extra festive, you can cut out pieces of holiday paper and place it on top of the lid but before the ring. This will cover the metal. You can just trace the lid to get the correct size.

For the tag, punch a hole in the corner and attach it to the jar with a piece of baker’s twine, raffia or ribbon.
