This year I attempted to make most of my Christmas presents. I wanted to make hot chocolate in a jar because I feel like it is a classic present that the whole family can enjoy, but I wanted to give it a little twist so I added cinnamon. I think the key to great hot chocolate is to use quality cocoa. I went with Ghiradelli premium cocoa powder which you can find at most grocery stores or you can purchase from Amazon here. I also made mixing directions on the computer, printed them and put them on the jar. You can print out my direction tags here. Merry Hot Chocolate drinking!
