With Thanksgiving just around the corner the holiday season is officially upon us! That means food, family, fun, & gifts. We recently created some fun hot chocolate kits in mason jars as gifts. These are easy to make! Here’s how you can create your own mason jar gifts this holiday season.
Here’s what you’ll need:
8oz mason jars, 2 1/2 cup measuring cups, 2 tablespoons, red & green raffia, miniature individually packaged candy canes, white chocolate hot chocolate mix, milk chocolate hot chocolate mix, mint chocolate chips, miniature marshmallow, 2 funnels, & scissors.
Using your funnel, place 1/2 cup of white chocolate mix in the mason jar. Make sure the powder is evenly distributed. Using second funnel, add 1/2 cup of milk chocolate mix to the jar, making sure the powder is evenly distributed.
Add 4 heaping tablespoons of mint chocolate chips. (Don’t forget to eat the chips that miss the jar opening!)
Add 4-5 heaping tablespoons of marshmallows. (Eat those stray marshmallows too!)
Seal lid on mason jar. Tie approximately 1.5 feet of both green & red raffia around top of jar. Secure candy cane to raffia. And voila, you’re done! You’ve got an easy, cute, & cost effective gift that is perfect for the holiday season & for keeping warm this winter. Plus they store well & stay fresh for several weeks.
Thanksgiving is only days away & we all have a lot to be thankful for. At the Homewood Suites Chicago Downtown, we’re thankful for our guest loyalty & for our fans. Hope everyone has a safe & happy Thanksgiving this year!
