Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix in Ornaments Recipe

Each ornament is the perfect amount of hot cocoa mix for 6 ounces of milk. This info can be placed on a small tag and tied to each ornament if desired.


2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
2 cups powdered milk
1 cup dried mini marshmallows
1 cup festive sprinkles


  1. Sift the powdered sugar followed by the cocoa in a large bowl to get rid of any lumps.
  2. Stir in the powdered milk and whisk well until everything is combined.
  3. Using a funnel, fill each ornament with 2 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix.
  4. Top each one with mini marshmallows and festive sprinkles. This can be kept in the pantry for 6 months.
