Homemade cocoa gift jar

I found the cocoa recipe on Nichole Heady's blog. Here it is:

2 cups Instant nonfat dried milk

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup cocoa

1 tsp salt

1 cup mini marshmallows (optional)

directions: 3 rounded spoonfuls to a mug of hot water

I wrote the directions on the back of the tag and this small jar holds enough to make 4-5 cups of cocoa (depends on how rich you want it or how big your mug is). The cocoa sentiment comes from a Papertrey Ink set called Warm Happiness. I could have really dressed this jar up more but my family may kill me for food if I don't get dinner going. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Very pretty! MMhhmmm I want some cocoa!

  2. Hey! You must have read my mind - I need a recipe for hot cocoa mix! This is a precious jar! I'm hoping to make some cocoa cones - I finally have the bags, but haven't done anything with them yet! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!!

  3. This is wonderful!
    Thanks for sharing-

  4. In response to your comment:
    I really don't see much difference from the blue one to the pick one. They say it punches more- but it looks pretty much the same. I just like the pink color!
    Funny- that gas is that low- it was 5.00 a gallon this summer when we went on a DRIVING vacation 7 hours away to the Redwoods!
    Yes- do get the glitter. Kinda spendy for the large set- but SO worth it!
    I know that you are a MS girl too
