Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

I found this idea on how to make homemade hot cocoa mix at Polished to Perfection, and just had to try it. Stick a few in a mug and pass them out to friends and family for a fun and enjoyable homemade gift.

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix


I followed the measurement directions posted here. It was fun trying to come up with additional combinations of chocolate chips and marshmallows. Here are my favorites:

  • white chocolate chips & peppermint marshmallows
  • Andes mint chips & marshmallows
  • mini chocolate chip morsels & marshmallows


The only trouble I had with this project was finding the icing cone bags. All I could find were cone bags with a big brand logo on them. I didn’t think that would look good, so I decided to try the pretzel bags instead. They worked just fine.


Here’s a gift basket I put together for John’s White Elephant gift exchange.

I included two mugs filled with homemade hot cocoa mix, Starbucks coffee, spiced walnuts, Christmas party mix and a CD (A Mediterranean Twelfth Night Celebration by the Early Interval).

I’d love to stay connected.
