Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

~ ~
I love putting together themed gift baskets for people I love!

This one went to my brother {Tim} and his family ~ filled with supplies for a hot chocolate party. I used the top half of a wine-bottle-gift-box for my base, lined it with a Christmas dish towel, and filled it with homemade hot chocolate mix, a loaf of pumpkin bread, and some other goodies.


I found the recipe for hot chocolate mix here, and it's a pretty good one. The recipe made nine jars of mix, plenty to have for those extra little hostess gifts I'll want to have on hand for the next week or so.


Plus, I have a few more gift baskets to assemble.
The theme this year is hot chocolate!
Yum.

Deb,
Your pictures are so festive! The red/white stripes just scram Christmas to me. Have you noticed how much your photography has improved this year? Because I really think it has.
