WOW. We are already over a week into November. The holidays will be here before I know it. I have not started shopping, but that doesn’t mean I can’t start getting prepared by making some super fun homemade gifts.

This week’s #SundaySupper is all about sharing Holiday Gifts from The Kitchen. When you make something by hand, your gift has so much more meaning and added love than something you bought from store. It’s even better when your homemade gift is super tasty and heart warming like my
Homemade Peppermint Mocha Mix.

Homemade Peppermint Mocha Mix in a Jar www.InTheKitchenWithKP

Ingredients:
1 cup powdered milk
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup instant coffee granules
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chocolate mint chips
1 cup crushed peppermint candy

Directions:
1. Layer all ingredients in 1-quart size jar
2. Jar will contain 12 servings

I should have experimented a little. I think I would have preferred to make a few more pretty layers, and even attempt a little more design to them if possible. I happen to be assembling my jar while my 2 little demon adorable children squabbled non-stop in the playroom. Note self…make in an empty house next time.

Feel free to use different size and shaped jars and get creative. Just keep the ratio of ingredients the same. You can also hang a cute decorative tag on the jar with directions for use.

  • Mix contents of jar in a large bowl
  • For each serving, place 1/3 cup mix in a mug, and stir in 1 cup boiling water.
  • Store remaining mix in airtight container.

I used the recipe for peppermint cocoa mix HERE as my inspiration, and this week the #SundaySupper team has 50 incredibly gorgeous holiday gifts from the kitchen to share with you this week!  If you were planning to scour Pinterest for homemade gifts to make in the next month we got you covered!
