On the fourth day of Christmas my true friend gave to me… four cups of cocoa to warm up my tummy!

Jamie shared her family cocoa recipe with us:

  • 2 c. nonfat dry milk powder
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. cocoa powder
  • 1/2 c. non-dairy creamer
  • dash salt

Mix all ingredients and store in an air-tight container. For an 8 oz. serving, mix 1/4 c. of mix with 3/4 c. of boiling water. Enjoy!


Heather put together four adorable hot cocoa gift cups. She put individual portions of hot cocoa mix into cellophane bags, and tied them with bakers twine. She decorated the cups with more bakers twine and scrapbook paper.

She then made a custom stir stick using a metal skewer and homemade marshmallows.

Each cup is adorned with a beautiful nutmeg candy cane.

It doesn’t get much cuter than this!!
