How cute are these? Forget someone on your list. Still stopping by holiday parties. Make a quick and useful gift like hot cocoa in a mason jar. This is also a great craft to involve the kids in.

How to make a hot cocoa snowman gift in a mason jar:

1 cup powdered milk
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup of marshmallows (or fill to top).

Layer powdered milk, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and marshmallows.

*If you want to cheat you can use a pre-made cocoa mix and just add marshmallows.

Now decorate your jar with puffy paint and tie a cute little felt scarf around him. I painted the top black and added a decorative ribbon. You can then tie on a cute little gift tag. Check out some of these free printable tags.
