The Ultimate Hot Cocoa Kit

Once I saw this super creative homemade gift idea, Gingerbread House Cookie Kit, from Bee in our Bonnet featured on eighteen25, I knew what I was going to do as a special homemade present to my tween’s Girl Scout leaders.

It inspired me to create The Ultimate Hot Cocoa Holiday Kit! I picked up a couple craft organizers, lined each compartment with parchment paper, and filled each one with a delightful cocoa accessory. Love it!

Here is what I filled mine with (from top to bottom, left to right):

  • Homemade vanilla marshmallows (I used this recipe from Smitten Kitchen)
  • Sugar wafers
  • Rolled double chocolate wafers
  • Crushed peppermint candies
  • Malt powder (I put in a small treat bag with a twist tie)
  • Dark chocolate shavings
  • Shortbread biscuits
  • Baileys® Irish Creme

I then hand wrote labels for what each accessory was, and tied a few packets of Starbucks Hot Cocoa Mix (in different flavors) with a spoon on the top with some pretty holiday yarn. After making a couple of them, I realized they are a few other people I need to make these for. So fun, easy, festive and delightful! Who is on your homemade holiday list? This makes a great teacher, neighbor, sister, mother homemade gift! Enjoy!
