{Simple!} Gingerbread Hot Cocoa Mix

I love gingerbread flavors for the holidays, don't you? This super easy Gingerbread Hot Cocoa Mix makes a gift for teachers, neighbors or friends. It's the perfect combination of cute and yummy! Because it starts with pre-made hot chocolate mix, it's super simple, too. And, the Gingerbread Flavored Gingerbread Men PEEPS add the finishing touch to this sweet gift!

Gingerbread Hot Cocoa Mix

(printable recipe here)
*makes 6 servings

  • 1-1/2 C Hot Chocolate Mix 
  • 2 t. Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 t. Ground Ginger
  • 1 t. Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 C Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 6 (1 package) Gingerbread Flavored Gingerbread Men PEEPS

In a bowl, mix hot chocolate mix with spices. Pour into a 32 ounce jar. Add mini chocolate chips on top of cocoa mix. Place 6 PEEPS on top of chocolate chips. Package mix with gift tag and jute. 

To make hot chocolate: Remove PEEPS from jar and shake to combine chocolate chips with hot cocoa mix. Place 5 T. mix in 8-10 oz of hot water or milk. Garnish with one gingerbread PEEPS. 

This mix is so delicious and the PEEPS add the perfect decorative and scrumptious addition! You might want to buy a few extra packages for yourself :). 

Of course, make sure you include the mixing instructions when you package your gift! I used small stamps and decorative tape to decorate the front of my tag. And, then I simply wrote the instructions on the backside. Alternately, you could print the instructions on cute paper!

I hope you give this recipe a try! I just love inexpensive and cute holiday gifts!
