There is a thread on another board (don't know if I can mention the name) where a member has posted many "In a Jar" recipes. PM me if you want the name of that board.

I know Alix gave me a great idea last Christmas of making cocoa mix in a jar and wrapping a nice ribbon around it.

Did suggest brownie mix Dina or just hot chocolate? LOL. Either one is pretty tasty!

This is the recipe I use all the time and works well for a "mix" in a jar.
Much cheaper than boxed pudding mixes....and all gift receiver adds is milk.

CHOCOLATE PUDDING OR PIE FILLING
Blend together:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup cocoa
Place in a jar. (The jars that marshmallow creme come in work well.)

Instructions:
Add 4 cups milk....blend well....microwave or cook on stove top till gently boiling.

Snowman Soup

Snowman Soup

1 package hot chocolate mix
3 Hershey Kisses
10 mini-marshmallows
1 candy cane


Place in a small ziplock bag in a new mug. Attach this poem:

Was told you've been real good this year
Always glad to hear it
With freezing weather drawing near
You'll need to warm the spirit
So here's a little Snowman Soup
Complete with stirring stick
Just add hot water, sip it slow
It's sure to do the trick!

This isn't a recipe..but had to tell it. It's a cute stocking stuffer. Put marshmallows and chocolate chips in a baggie and label them Reindeer and Snowmam Poop. We did this last year in little plastic cups with see through lids...and sold $ 23.00 worth at a $ .25 a piece....lol.

I've done this before for movie buffs, it's a really fun jar to create. Try filling a jar with popcorn seeds and then laying small (clear plastic) bags of various popcorn seasoning on top of the seeds. Tie a cloth napkin around the jar to keep those seasoning covered fingers clean while your gift receipent hits the "play" button
