Step 1: Measure All Ingredients
The first step on how to make hot chocolate is to measure all your ingredients. Then you place them into separate bowls. That way, you can have all your ingredients in front of you while you fill your jar.
Step 2: Start Pouring
Starting with your powdered ingredients first, start filling your container. Continue pouring, layering the ingredients in your container. After you added all your powdered ingredients, add a layer of chocolate chips.
Lastly, place a layer of marshmallows. Make sure your powders go on the bottom so they don’t fall in between the cracks of the marshmallows and chocolate chips. Now your jar is ready to close, decorate, and label!
Step 3: Decorate and Label
Close the lid of your glass jar. You can now choose to decorate it any way you wish. It can be ribbon, tissue paper, or whatever you like.
Next, take your label and write down your ingredients and how to make hot chocolate step by step. Don’t forget to tie it around your jar. Perfect!
Recipe yields 6 cups of hot cocoa. To make, add 1 cup hot water and 5 cups hot milk to the mixture. You can cook it on a stovetop, microwave-safe bowl, or in a crockpot.
