Homemade Treats!

For Christmas this year at school I made my coworkers Homemade Hot Chocolate in mason jars with homemade tags that I made with my new Cricut!


The recipe for hot chocolate was from Martha Stewart, and can also be found below:


  • 3 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon table salt
  • Whatever milk you’d like for serving


  1. In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.
  2. For individual servings, pour 1 cup milk into a microwave-safe mug, and microwave on high just until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. For a larger batch of cocoa, warm the milk in a saucepan set over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the milk boil; as it warms, stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.

After making the mix (I made 3x this amount in order to make enough for 9 mason jars full for my co-workers),  I scooped the mix into mason jars until they were 3/4 full. Then I topped off the mix with mini chocolate chips, then broken peppermint pieces and mini marshmallows on top.  Yummy! They were a hit.
