it was the para-teacher's birthday at our preschool this week. so hendrix and i put together a quick, season appropriate gift for her. i typically give hot cocoa to our friends and family during christmas. usually i do it in brown bags or waxed bags tied with baker's twine and a tag with the prep directions. this time, since i was only doing one, i took a cue from pinterest and used a mason jar and added some marshmallows. this recipe makes about 1 1/2 pint jars.
clementine's hot cocoa mix
1 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 c. sugar
1 heaping teaspoon of salt whisk and combine thoroughly. store in an container.
1 tablespoon of hot cocoa mix
8 oz. milk warm in pan until hot and mix is dissolved. ENJOY!
