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!
