This year we celebrated Jessica's husbands 30th birthday at a cabin in Big Bear, CA. We created a color pallet worthy of this momentous occasion but also complimented our adventurous backdrop.
We wanted to kick off this adventurous blog series with a fun and easy DIY. So, the first part, of this 2 part DIY, is the Mason Jar Hot Cocoa. These make great Christmas gifts, party favors or can be made for a crowd at a camping trip or cabin vacation!
We love how they can be made ahead of time and stored - the Holidays can get so hectic! Bring them as a hostess gift or spike them with Baileys or Kaluah for a kick!
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup cocoa
2 cups powdered milk (to make this completely non-dairy, omit powdered milk and add another cup of the non-dairy creamer.)
1/2 cup non-dairy creamer
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 /8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix all the ingredients (except the marshmallows and chocolate chips) in a large bowl. Spoon two tablespoons into an 8 oz mason jar and top with a handful of chocolate chips and marshmallows. Add hot water or milk (we like almond or soy). Shake your jar, remove the lid and enjoy!
Stay tuned later this week for part two of this fabulous DIY - the Mason Jar Cocoa Sleeve!
