A How To | Hot Chocolate Jars

Good Morning!

Do you have those last minute gifts or just don't like giving gift cards to people? Want something more personal or that looks like you put in more effort. Well today I have a fun & easy holiday DIY for you to do, it'll only take a bit of time and can be done on a budget!

I love this for easy & meaningful gifts that take no time at all but look like they were thought through.


A couple nights ago, a friend & I got together to create these little gifts for her students! I love this idea because you can even change the theme throughout the year.

They turned out great and so yummy! It took us no time to get all 18 of them done.

What you will need;

  • Mason Jars/Jars
  • Hot Chocolate (any flavour you want)
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Marshmallows
  • Crushed/Whole Candy Canes (optional)

Lets get to it!


Step 1: Get your jars & supplies ready, crush your candy canes (if you choose).

Step 2: Put an even amount of your choice of hot chocolate in each jar.

Step 3: Add in a layer of chocolate chips (you could even try white or butterscotch chips for a different flavor!).

Step 4: Add in a layer of marshmallows, I love marshmallows so I add in a lot!  (who doesn't love marshmallows & hot chocolate?).

Step 5: Sprinkle your crushed candy canes on top! (or if you want you can keep them whole and attach them to the finished jar!).

Step 6: Close up your lid and finish it off with a Christmas tag and your all set!


So versatile and only a few dollars a finished jar. If your stumped or your giving away home made gifts this year, this is a great go to and one I always turn to! Easy & quick to make you can do these by yourself or with a friend (which I choose to do, by the fire side might I add).

Such a fun little idea you can do in an hour tops and even get your family & your children involved for a cold Saturday afternoon. These are great for Teacher gifts (maybe even attached a Coffee shop gift card), friends, family, secret Santa's or those hard to buy people you have this year. Really it's good for all! 

Thanks to my friend who let me take shots of her as she modeled each step!

Whats your go to for an easy gift?
