Make a Hot Chocolate Kit

Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? Whenever my family is out enjoying winter activities we makes sure to have a full thermos with us. This year I am giving my hot chocolate recipe, in kit form, for gifts this year to friends, teachers and outdoor lovers.

It takes an extra step, but I prefer to make hot chocolate from melted semi sweet chocolate chips rather than coco powder. I think it just tastes better than powder.

Instruction on how to use chips for hot chocolate

Melt 3 teaspoon of semi-sweet chips and add 2 cups of milk with a half cinnamon stick. Stir and make sure all chocolate is melted being careful to keep the temp below boiling.

This is how to make a hot chocolate kit. I like to build the kit in such a way, as it can be broken down for single servings, or a kit that makes a big pot of hot chocolate for a chilly crew.

You need:
Large or Small Mason Jars

Ribbons

Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (used for cookies)

Cinnamon sticks

Sugar cane (for decoration)

Folded card with instructions

Put chips, cinnamon stick and sugar cane in a mason jar. Tie a ribbon over the rim and decorate. Tie with ribbon or otherwise affix a folded card with instructions. These can be as elaborate or simple as you want. Use pictures on a color printer or just simple hand written instructions and a season’s greetings on plain white paper. Getting the kids to decorate is always a good idea; maybe they can draw a snowman? Place a sugar cane and cinnamon stick (s) on the jar and tie it with a ribbon.
Happy Giving!
