Super Coupon Woman’s 25 Frugal Gift Ideas Series…Hot Cocoa Gift in A Jar Recipe :)

Short on cash this holiday season? That’s okay! Super Coupon Woman will bring you a 25 frugal gift ideas to make that will save you time & money! Homemade gifts are probably the most loved…think about it, do we really remember that sweater or tie we got last year? My first frugal gift idea that I bring you is:

Hot Cocoa Gift in a Jar Recipe:
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup powdered milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows

This mix will fill a 1-quart jar (12 servings)

Layer the ingredients for homemade cocoa in a jar
Add a ribbon and a tag… 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.”

Have more gifts to make, double the recipe 🙂

I usually save glass jars such as spaghetti, pickles, ect throughout the year to make different gifts, if you do not have any saved, Wal-mart and other stores should sell 12 mason jars as a set for this gift idea. Great project to make with children.

Get creative and decorate the jars to make it even more special!
