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!
