DIY Hot Chocolate Gift Kit
When you’re thinking about putting together a small gift like a hot cocoa kit, consider personalizing it with your favorite small toppings. We love melt-in-your-mouth mini marshmallows and peppermints, so that’s what we’re including in our kit. If you love your drinks a little on the spicy side, feel free to add warming spices like cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, and more. The possibilities are endless!

How To Make Your Own Snowman Hot Cocoa Kit In 3 Easy Steps
1.) First, prep your snowman body. Using your round glass jars, carefully add your favorite cocoa and toppings into each jar. Once finished, twist the lid top on, add a spot of hot glue to the lid top, and glue your jars on top of each other.
2.) Once your snowman’s body has been made, use your permanent marker and ribbon to give them a little personality! We gave our snowman a smiling face and used the gingham ribbon to create a little scarf to keep them warm.
3.) Next, complete the look with a cozy winter hat. To make the top hat, simply use your scissors to cut a circle from the black poster board and glue it to the center of your black plastic jar lid. To make sure your snowman’s hat doesn’t fall, add a little dot of hot glue to the top of your snowman’s head and gently press the hat on.
