Candy Cane Cocoa Mix

Annacia *


This makes a pretty layered gift for almost anyone. So quick and easy to make (once the candy canes are broken into suitable size pieces) that you can make several in just a few mins.

Option 1, Buy a few cute mugs and line with cellophane bags with enough of the mix to to make a mug of cocoa. It’s a little easier to just fill the bag a little bit, put it in the mug, then finish filling. D

Option 2, Fill as many Mason jars as you want to give with layers of the ingredients in the order listed. Close tightly, label or tag with instructions.
