Peppermint Hot Cocoa in a jar – FREE printables

peppermint hot cocoa in a jar.jpg

Are you looking for an easy gift idea? Well, my dears, you have found it! This Peppermint Hot Cocoa in a jar is pretty much the easiest (and yummiest!) gift idea out there. I was able to create this using things I had on hand, making it the most inexpensive gift ever! You can make a bunch at a time for neighbors, friends, teachers, coaches, visitors, family, etc.

 

To make these you will need:

Hot Cocoa mix – I used Starbucks Peppermint Hot Cocoa packets because it’s the best hot cocoa on the planet. YUM!

Marshmallows

Crushed peppermint candies (optional)

Mason Jar(s)

Scrapbook paper (optional)

Ribbon, Jute or Twine–I used Jute Avery 2″ Round labels,  Avery Printable Tags with Strings (I used jute instead of the strings that come in the package)  

 

Instructions:

Layer 7 hot cocoa packets in the bottom of the jar (1 3/4 cups total of cocoa mix), crushed peppermint and marshmallows to your liking in the jar and replace jar lid. Next, place a piece of scrapbook paper (cut to size) over the lid but under the ring of the lid.  Next, I wanted the place the instructions for preparing the cocoa so I designed some cute instructions using picmonkey.com (it’s free!) and uploaded my image to Avery.com/print

The software is super easy to use and Avery has such nice products. I’ve used Avery labels for years and I love them! 

You can save and use my images if you’d like!

Next, I did the same thing with the Avery Printable Gift Tags.

I used this image, uploaded it to Avery.com, printed my tags and attached them  with jute to my jars.

Doesn’t get much easier than that! You could even use Design and Print on their website if you want to make your own images. It’s really quick and easy and looks totally professional and CUTE!

Now you’re ready to give this yummy gift to anyone you choose! I’m giving them to pretty much everyone on my gift list this year.

    For my DIY projects, I use them a lot in the garage work area, I label all the bins with the different size screw, nails, nuts and bolts etc. When we need a wood or metal screw, we know which bin to pull up.. saves us time. I also label all the kids school supplies when they start back in the fall. I try to use a cute font and add their favorite character to the label, so it sticks out and they can find their folders or books quicker.
