Hello there! It’s Ginger from, & I am so excited to be back here at Design Dazzle. I always love visiting with all of you! I’m usually over at my blog sharing a fun craft, my latest DIY project, a yummy recipe or a fun craft to do with you kiddos ~ like these adorable hot cocoa in a cute reindeer jar gift idea. These are perfect for your kiddos to give to their friends & teachers. I’m also going to give you the BEST hot cocoa mix recipe! Yum! So let’s get started!

hot cocoa supplies

First you’ll need to gather a few supplies:
jars (I found these at Target in their party section.)
red gumballs or pom poms
wiggly eyes
kraft paper (I used my Silhouette to cut the antlers & ears.)
hot glue gun & glue sticks

To make the hot cocoa mix I put two heaping tablespoons of hot cocoa mix in the jar.

Then one tablespoon of vanilla creamer went right on top!

Then I filled the jar to the top with mini marshmallows & 2 Hershey Kisses.

Then I repeated these steps until all of my jars were filled. Each jar will make one serving of hot cocoa. Just add the ingredients to a glass of warm milk or water & stir.

Next, I used a hot glue gun (a parent’s job!) to attach the cute little face & the antlers & ears.
