Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe

Hot chocolate and Christmas go together like winter and snow. You just shouldn’t have one without the other! We live in the Midwest and winters here can be very unpredictable. I’m of the opinion that if it’s going to be cold, gray and gloomy outside, it might as well be a productive cold and snow! I realize not everyone shares my opinion. I love the snow. It just makes everything seem brighter and warmer. Kind of like hot chocolate. It just makes the winters and time spent with family during the holidays that much brighter and that much warmer.

It’s that time of the month where you’ll find me over on Kenarry: Ideas for the Home where I’m sharing the full recipe and tutorial for this DIY Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe and Christmas gift idea. It’s a two for one! Plus, I’ve even created two different labels for your gift jars. So, hop on over and check out this recipe. Did I mention it makes a great Christmas gift?
