Mint Chocolate Hot Cocoa Gift Jars

Ingredients:

5 C. dry powdered milk
1 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 C. powder sugar

2 tsp. cornstarch to prevent sticking
Andes mint baking bits or chopped up Andes Mint Chocolates
You will also need small glass jars. Mason jars would work perfectly.

Directions:

Step 1 – Combine the dry ingredients, mixing well.
Step 2 – Add about 1/4 cup of hot cocoa mix to the bottom of the each jar and allow it to settle. If you are unsure of the size of your jar, I would fill 3/4 of it with homemade cocoa mix and then fill the rest of the way with ‘extras’.
Step 3 – Add in the mint baking bits on top.
Step 4 – Tie with twine and pretty ribbon and attach a gift tag for holiday gift giving.
Each jar is about 1-2 servings when added to 8-10 oz of hot water or milk.
