Hot Cocoa Gifts

My kids recently had colds and in the interim became obsessed with hot cocoa. Since the holiday’s are soon approaching, I thought, what better gift then homemade hot cocoa. Below are a few ideas for a hot cocoa gift box, hot cocoa gift for kids and a sweet cone bag gift as well. I also added a homemade cocoa recipe. Happy Crafting!!

Hot Cocoa Homemade Mix
Got this plain wood box from Michael’s. Love the natural way that it was.
Added burlap to the inside for padding. Then wrapped it in shrink wrap.
I found these cute tumblers at HomeGoods and though I do not celebrate Christmas, many children in my life do! So I just could not resist to make homemade hot cocoa for them to have and use in these cups!

 Fill up 2 servings of your hot cocoa mix.
Then seal the bag tight with a rubber band and cut excess cellophane.
Put that bag into another cone bag…
add the chocolate chips and marshmallows…
then seal it tightly with a rubber band and ribbon.
I made personalized labels with the Avery design center and added instruction labels in the back.
