DIY Homemade Reindeer Hot Chocolate Mix

Let the cute Christmas gifts continue! Usually, I don’t have anyone to make girlie Christmas presents for. If I danced through the office handing out presents to all the people that go out of their way not to speak to me, they would think I’m stranger than the already do. But this year is different! 

This year, we’re flying to the UK to see My Official Treat Taster’s friends and family for a week before Christmas. And guess what? He has a mother and a sister that I get to make cute Christmas gifts for! This DIY homemade hot chocolate mix in a reindeer cone is for his mother. I hope she likes it!

    Your idea for the reindeer hot chocolate is so cute, but what are the directions for using it? Do you mix the whole pkg.,with hot water,milk? I want to send these to my grandchildren in Alaska. So if you could send me the directions for using this cute mix, it would be really nice.
    Thankyou, Penny Newton

      Hi Penny,
      Mix 3 tablespoons of the cocoa mix and 1 teaspoon of the chocolate chunks/chips with 1 cup of hot milk. Stir until well blended, top with a few marshmallows and serve! 🙂 Hope this helps.
