4 cups of mix, or about 8 servings

Showcase this holiday drink mix in a glass container--recycle mason-style jars, juice bottles, or vintage glass milk bottles found at tag sales. Layer the ingredients in the jar, seal it, tie a ribbon around its neck, and attach a card with how-to's.

How to Make It

Prep time: 5 minutes

Layer ingredients in the order listed in a 1-quart bottle. Seal with lid and/or paper cupcake liner "hat" and attach a card with preparation directions.

To prepare: Pour the contents of the bottle into a large saucepan. Add 3 1/2 cups low-fat milk or water.
Stir over medium heat until all of the candy pieces are melted and the drink is creamy and hot.
Pour into mugs. Add some marshmallows and a peppermint-stick stirrer, if desired.

TIP: Twist a piece of paper into a wide-mouthed cone shape to make a "funnel" for pouring the ingredients without spilling.
