Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe

Hot Cocoa Mix

Makes 2 1/4 cups mix (enough for 8 drinks)

Have fun layering cocoa mix ingredients in a decorative jar to create a pretty and tasty gift everyone will enjoy. Decorate the jar with a ribbon and candy cane tied on top. For a grown-up drink, we suggest adding a shot of Kahlua, peppermint schnapps, or amaretto after mixing with water.


  • 3/4 cup dry milk powder
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy canes
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows


  1. To assemble in jars, layer milk powder, cocoa powder, sugar, chocolate chips, candy canes, and mini marshmallows. Secure with lid.
  2. Directions for making cocoa:
  3. Mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined. For each serving, place 1/3 cup cocoa mix in a mug. Slowly stir in 6 ounces boiling water. Continue stirring until smooth. Top with whipped cream, if desired.
