Beautiful and unique gift idea! I purchased mason jars on sale and each gift cost about $2.50 each. I would recommend using dark chocolate powder as it makes it taste richer and less like Swiss Miss. I also added mini marshmallows at the top. I used quart sized jars and found myself using only half the ingredients (1/2c cocoa, 1/2c sugar, 1/2c powdered milk). I cut out cardstock circles and decorated them as the peppermint candies as the gift tags. As I was bringing them to work for my coworkers, tons of people stopped me in the halls and elevators telling me how cute they were. Sure win!

This mix will fill a 1-quart jar (12 servings), but if your containers are different sizes, just keep the ratio of ingredients constant. On the back of the tag, write: "Mix contents in a large bowl. For each serving, place 1/3 cup cocoa mix in a mug and stir in 1 cup boiling water. Store remaining mix in airtight container."
