Christmas Countdown: 24

We know you’re all counting down to Christmas so we thought we’d help you out with some fun Holiday ideas to make the waiting a little more fun.

Today’s post came from a great blog called The Crafted Sparrow!
These adorable little jars make great gifts on their own or you could bring them in to have them added to one of our custom gift baskets for a more personal touch.


  • 1 cup powdered milk
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy


  • Layer powdered milk, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, chocolate chips, and peppermint candy.
Note:This mix will fill a 1-quart jar (12 servings), but if your containers are different sizes, just keep the ratio of ingredients constant. On the back of the tag, write: “Mix contents in a large bowl. For each serving, place 1/3 cup cocoa mix in a mug and stir in 1 cup boiling water. Store remaining mix in airtight container.”
