Peppermint Hot Chocolate in a Jar Mix
1 2/3 c mint chocolate chips
1 1/3 c nonfat dry milk powder
2/3 c sugar
1/3 c quality unsweetened cocoa powder
8 peppermint sticks or candies
2 2 cup jars with lids
Layer ingredients in two jars in order. If using peppermint sticks, place them around the edge of the inside of the jar, to make them look fancier. Add more chocolate chips if needed to top up the jar before sealing. Label.
Bring 1 2/3 cups water to boil, stirring in contents of jar over medium heat until chocolate is melted. Serve with peppermint stick as a “stir stick” in each mug.
