One of my new favorite hot chocolate gift ideas involves a bit of a kick. Samantha Richardson of Goodnyou blog came up with a wonderful idea to create her own mix. What makes it special is that it includes a standard hot chocolate mix and is topped with marshmallows. A small bottle of Baileys Irish Cream.
The packaging is simple, a clear glass mason jar for the hot chocolate mix and a rope tying the bottle of Baileys to it. This would be a great gift to give in mass for the holidays. You can get bulk hot chocolate and marshmallows at a warehouse store like Sam’s Club or Costco. Target sells the mason jars for $9.99 for 12 piece package. You are probably better off buying the jars at a store to save you the cost of shipping heavy glass.
You can find a step by step photo tutorial on Samantha’s blog, including the simple, yet genius way she got the hot chocolate powder into the jars.
