Mint Hot Chocolate Mix: An Easy Christmas Gift

Mint Hot Chocolate Mix - a great homemade holiday gift

One of my standby gifts to make (probably every 2 or 3 years) is Mint Hot Chocolate Mix. I rename it every so often just like any manufacturer to make it seem new (i.e. Mint Truffle Cocoa, Candy Cane Chocolate etc). I usually put 2 cups of mix in a quart size bag and put that bag in a Holiday fabric bag that I have sewn & tied with a ribbon with a direction tag attached. It is really easy and not too expensive.Mint Hot Chocolate Mix

My family usually puts up a pretty big fuss if I don’t make a batch or two for us, too.  We like to doll it up with whipped cream and mini candy canes for show.  It’s funny how much more tasty hot chocolate is when you have a candy cane to stir into it!!

  1. This sounds great. Ilove chocolate and mint, together. Just wanted you to know that our sick Mr. Linky has recovered. I am posting everyone’s links. Thanks for your patience, today.

  2. Finally something to smile about! 🙂

    My mom used to stir up a hot chocolate mix when we were kids. It had powdered milk, coffee mate, Nestle’s Quik, and confectioner’s sugar. Now that powdered milk makes it rather expensive.

  3. I love your blog and recipes. My blog is to share memories and recipes too. I made this for my family every winter. Glad to meet you today on Tumbleweed Contess. Drop in and leave a recipe on our Holiday Cookie Exchange. Then come back to my kitchen often.
