I love making handmade gifts. It shows that you really thought of the person you're giving it to. It also lets you be creative :)
70g cocoa powder
3tbs corn starch
Mix it all up and put it in a pretty jar.
After it, write the basic recipe for one mug:
2tbs hot chocolate mix
You can also have fun and write more recipes with add-ons
ie: a caramel hot chocolate recipe, a pumpkin hot chocolate one, a vanilla and orages one... Just think of what you'd love to taste and write it on some cool paper.
To make the present even better add the ingredients for the recipes written above: vanilla and rum extract, marshmallows, sprinkles, crushed peppermint candy, fudge, cinnamon, whatever you or the lucky person receiving it love to taste. Add labels to them if you're doing what I did and packaging everything in foil or plastic wrap.
You should always mix one mug, just to see if you have the proprtions right :D
