This Candy Cane Hot Chocolate in a Jar is a great 15 minute edible Christmas gift and tastes delicious! This homemade hot chocolate mix is easy to make, as well as a festive and fun treat to gift teachers, your coworkers, neighbors and friends!
In a 500 ml/16 oz wide mouth mason jar (or any jar this capacity), layer half the milk mixture, cocoa, remaining milk mixture, colored sugar (s), crushed candy canes and white chocolate chips.
Seal with lid. Then I add a little bow, a little ziplock baggie of extra sprinkles and a small candy cane (to add as the garnish on this Candy Cane Hot Chocolate)
