Happy Monday everyone! We got our first snow storm this weekend and although it wasn’t too bad, it was enough to remind me that winter is here! Which means it’s the perfect time for hot chocolate. And I’m here to share a delicious and super easy homemade hot chocolate recipe – along with some FREE instruction labels to add to your creation. It’s easy to make and you can mix a big batch to last you through these endless winter days.
I tried a few different combinations and this one was the best. All you need to do is grab the ingredients and a few cute mason jars, or a larger jar for a bigger batch, and you’re all set to create!
After you mix your ingredients, fill your jar(s) and top it off with a few extra chocolate chips. Add a pretty bow and the free instruction labels.
Visit my freebies page to print these fun labels and recipe. To get my freebies, you must be a subscriber to my blog.

Then print the labels onto card stock, cut them out, punch a hole in the top, and tie them with ribbon, string or baker’s twine.
If you make a big batch, simply attach the larger label to your container and set up your own hot cocoa bar. I set up one around Christmas time and is been a huge hit with visitors and my kids! Here are some additional items you could include in your hot cocoa bar:
- candy cane stirrers
- cinnamon sticks
- mini marshmallows
- for an adult hot cocoa bar, add liquor such as Kahlua, Godvia Chocolate Liquor, Rum Chata, Irish Cream, and Frangelico
- mugs, spoons and plates
- holiday decorations
- tray and coasters
I hope you enjoyed this recipe and maybe make a batch to help get you through these cold winter days!
