A Simply Beautiful Homemade Christmas Gift

Homemade Christmas Gifts are always a lovely gesture. It's good to remember that gifts don't always have to be fancy or expensive, sometimes it's the thought that counts, and a homemade gift can be much more personal. Something like these beautiful hot chocolate jars can also be a great way to get the kids involved in making some beautiful gifts for family and friends this Christmas.

You will need:

A Jar
Sugar (6 tbs)
Drinking Chocolate (4 tbs)
Creamer (6 tbs)
Powdered Milk (6 tbs)
Chocolate Chips (2 tbs)
Mini Marshmallows
Some ribbon or string and a gift tag



  • First, make sure your empty jar is clean and add your ingredients one by one so they create pretty layers. (Watch the video below for an example). We find the following order works well - Sugar, Drinking chocolate, Creamer, Milk, Chocolate chips. You may also want to give the jar a gentle shake between adding each one to level it off.
  • fill up the rest of the jar with as many marshmallow as you can fit in!
  • Put the lid on and finish with a pretty ribbon, string and gift tag.

  • To Drink: You may want to add some instructions with your gift... we suggest the following.

  • Remove the marshmallows from the jar, mix the remaining ingredients together thoroughly.
  • Add approx 6 tbs to your cosiest  mug and fill with hot water.
  • Mix well
  • Finish with a good squirt of squirty cream and you marshmallows.
