Here’s a sweet gift idea that would be fun to give: Hot Chocolate in a jar with a “Have a Cup of Cheer” free printable gift tag. This recipe for Hot Chocolate in a jar is different than most gifts like this with dry ingredients…think more like Hot Chocolate on a stick, only in a jar and extra creamy.
If you’ve ever made a chocolate ganache, this is basically like that, only here we are adding mini marshmallows and crushed candy canes to the top. Here’s what you need:
– 2 bags of really good milk chocolate chips. Guittard is the best!
– 2 cups cream (I told you it was creamy)
Directions: Heat the cream in a sauce pan until it’s very hot, stirring while it heats. Now pour the cream over the chocolate chips in a glass bowl. Mix together until completely combined and the chips are all melted. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge overnight.
Now for the fun part. Scoop out big scoops of the thick chocolate mixture into 16oz. wide mouth mason jars. I love the size of these little jars! A wide mouth jar is a good idea for this gift to allow for easy scooping.
Now top with those mini marshmallows called mallow bits, the teeny ones along with crushed candy canes. Store these jars in the fridge until you’re ready to deliver. Also let the recipient also know to keep their jar stored in the fridge. This mixture – chocolate ganache is good in the fridge up to two weeks.
To serve, just scoop out a big spoonful and stir into a steamy cup of hot milk until blended. It makes for a really creamy cup of hot chocolate.
Now for the fun gift tag to go with. Use a 2 inch round craft punch to punch out these little tags.
You can mount the little tags on bigger round circles if you’d like. The other little tag has a spot for you to sign your name and it includes directions to go with the gift.
It’s a fun gift to give and to eat. 🙂
