Homemade hot chocolate was a winter staple in our home growing up. Topped with mini marshmallows and a graham cracker for dunking, a mug of hot chocolate was the perfect way to warm up from a day of sledding or doing chores on the farm. Sadly, it has been awhile since I’ve made a batch of hot chocolate to enjoy, but when I was racking my brain for Christmas gift ideas I decided to dust off the family recipe.
Since the recipe makes a fairly large batch of hot chocolate mix you will have enough to gift as well as keep some for yourself! Paired with homemade marshmallows, you can bundle the hot chocolate up into a mini gift set! If all this isn’t enough, feel free to completely spoil your recipient and add a coffee mug into the mix. This gift is sure to knock the socks off anyone on your holiday list!
