Cuppa Christmas Cocoa

Cocoa in a canning jar.

I made some delish cocoa mix this morning. I found the recipe in my Susan Branch cookbook (L O V E her).

Hot Cocoa Mix

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies (optional)
To make cocoa: Add 2 Tablespoons Cocoa Mix to 8 oz. of hot milk; stir until dissolved.
I am going to serve mine in these festive, red mugs that I got for my birthday last year from my sister, Alli.

Aren't they just perfect?

Thanks for the recipe! Sounds yummy!

I was thinking about making some to give as Christmas gifts, do you mind if I ask where you get the jars and lids? Thanks!!

Hi Cara, thanks for visiting my blog. :)
I found my Ball canning jars at my local grocery store on sale for $1 each.
Hopefully you can find some too!
