Anyone who really knows me knows how much I absolutely love hot cocoa. It’s easily my all time favorite beverage since I love to make my own different kinds of flavored cocoa mix from scratch, and today I’ll be sharing my favorite peppermint hot cocoa mix.
As with most of our themed “in a jar” recipes, you’ll be layering the ingredients into the jar in an aesthetically pleasing way (and optionally attaching the recipe instructions to the jar before decorating it as well).
