Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mix – Gift in a Jar

Have I told y’all how much I love entertaining? Surely with all my posts about hosting parties and events you’ve learned that I LOVE having people over to my house. I love making gifts for people. AND, I love making people yummy foods to eat.  When getting my home ready and decorated I always check Walmart FIRST. Their prices are affordable and they carry great brands like Better Homes and Gardens that I can rely on to have some great building blocks for my little projects that are ON TREND and are super affordable.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Speaking of Better Homes and Gardens, last week I had the opportunity to watch the Better Homes and Gardens Live stream event. The Better Homes and Gardens Live is a seasonal decoration show – hosted by BHG’s own Eddie Ross that will inspire you to get your home guest-ready for the holidays.  {If you missed it, you can still watch and get some tips of your own… check the end of this post for the recorded video}.

Being inspired, I went to the store with a project in mind and I found these great little glass canisters with these beautiful wooden tops.   Wouldn’t you know they were Better Homes and Gardens!? Taking some tips from the pros, I decided to put together a fun mix in a jar.  I love to get gifts in jars for cookies, breads, soups, etc.  I decided to try my hand at it!  I found a great little recipe for dry hot chocolate mix – the original calls for powdered milk. I don’t love it. I like to use my raw milk for hot chocolate so this is the mix we’ve come up with love:
