Food Gift: The Perfect Hot Cocoa Mix


No Comments


By now you’ve probably seen a plethora of DIY hot cocoa mixes floating around the web. But the way Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events adds a layer of Ghiradelli peppermint chocolates to this Perfect Hot Cocoa Mix makes my heart sing like none other. You’ll have the hearts of your favorite teacher, baby momma friends, and trusted hair stylist singing too when they receive this beautifully packaged hot cocoa mix topped with a candy cane heart, and tied up with… a Kahlua Shot!

Now that says warm and fuzzy.

I suggest inviting a few of your closest friends over to make a night out of DIYing these cocoa mixes. Add in a few holiday cookies and you have a sweet way to usher in the new year.
