Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Give a teacher a Christmas gift that they will love and use and give them Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix.

Delicious Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix | Mason Jar Gift Idea

I’ve heard it said that the last thing a teacher needs for Christmas is something they can’t use. My sister received a statue of the Virgin Mary once. It was a nice gesture but being that she wasn’t Catholic, she did not have much use for it. A mason jar filled with homemade hot cocoa mix is perfect because once the mix is gone they have the mason jar left to use for other things.

3 cups of Powdered Sugar

2 cups of Instant Dry Milk

1 cup of unsweetened cocoa

Mason Jars (optional – but these are my favorite)

Silicone Spoons Molds (optional)


Combine all 3 ingredients together in a bowl and then store in a jar of your choosing.

1/3 cup of mix will make a tasty 8 oz cup of hot cocoa. If you want to mix things up a bit (pun totally intended) you can stir your drink with fun chocolate peppermint spoons.


I picked up the Wilton silicone spoon mold a few months ago and couldn’t wait to use it. I used the Candy Cane Candy Melts and the Bright White Candy Melts melted together.


I piped it into the mold using  a pastry bag and allowed them to set in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes before carefully removing the spoons from the mold.


These candy cane spoons are super fun to use if you set up a hot cocoa bar for a party or just for fun. I put them right in a jar. I recommend wrapping each spoon in a clear cellophane bag if you intend to include them in your hot cocoa jar gift.
