Gifty: Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

  After seeing Sue's giant hot cocoa jar on her tour,
I knew it was a fab idea that I had to try.
What darling gifts this would make!  
 So I thought I'd try this:  Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix in cool jars.
 Here's what I did. 

1.  Found jars w/ metal lids (These I found at Ikea). 
2.  Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix.. recipe found online here.
3.  Shopped for the recipe supplies.
4.  Coffee scoops found at Walmart in the kitchen gadget isle.
5.  Made tags from vintage Christmas images found online. I googled 'vintage christmas card'
     Question:  Couldn't I have just bought premade hot cocoa mix and put in the the jars? 
 Absolutely. Totally fine.
I just wanted to try the homemade recipe. Plus I would have missed the fun of this:

The jars took 4 cups of mix, then I topped it off w/ mini marshmallows.
I tied hemp string around the neck, then added the tags and scoop.

Fun project, a neat gift, creative and easy.
You could go crazy and add some fun things, jingle bells, more ribbon, an ornament, burlap bow... limitless.
I would love to hear if you tried it!
Merry Merry!
