Grind approximately five candy canes or the peppermint candies in a mixer jar and keep it ready.
Sieve 2 tbsps of milk powder, 1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 tbsp of sugar. (1 serving of the essential ingredient set) This process helps to remove the lumps.
Now add the crushed peppermint to the sieved chocolate mix and mix thoroughly. Now transfer this to the mason jar or Ziplocs. Add the marshmallows on top. You can add two servings or more depending upon your mason jar size.
Decorate it and add the servings and required instructions on a gift tag.
That's it. Your Christmas hot cocoa mason jars are ready.
You can skip the milk powder and make it vegan-friendly.
Instead of peppermint, you can also include cinnamon (¼ tsp) and nutmeg (⅛ tsp).
