Everything is bigger in Texas even the cocoa. This makes a gallon sized Jar.

You can get gallon sized jars in restraunts, concession stands, school cafeterias, or buy them filled with pickles from plases like Sam's club or GFS. You can use either glass or plastic. But make sure all smells are gone from the jar before using. You can also get nice looking gallon or 4 liter Jars from import stores, and every so often at a Dollar general or Big Lots.

Basket Ideas:
4 mugs, a can of redi whip, the jar of cocoa, a loaf of homemade bread, and homemade jam
