Here's what Country Living says,"Our hot-chocolate mix, made with the finest cocoa and chocolate, is a cut above most store-bought varieties. Fill jars with the mix, cover the lids with a festive swath of fabric, and include peppermint "stirring" sticks for added flavor and color. Try adding to a basket with mugs, spoons, marshmallows, whipped cream and maybe a good movie!

I made this up and put two tablespoon on saran wrap and tied it up with a red or green ribbon and typed the instructions where it says to put the cup of milk in the saucepan and stir. This was very good. I gave the two tablespoon with a cup and a candy cane in the cup for christmas gifts. Thank you for sharing this because it was a nice gift to give. Chef #220151
