Directions

  1. Layer sugar, cocoa powder, milk powder, and chocolate pieces in two 2-cup milk bottles or jars, dividing equally. Add additional chocolate pieces to bottles or jars to fill small gaps, if necessary. Tightly cover and store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 weeks.
  2. In a large saucepan combine contents of one jar with 1-2/3 cups water. Heat and stir over medium heat until hot and chocolate pieces have melted. Pour into 4 mugs and serve with peppermint sticks or candy canes, if desired. Makes enough for 8 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

To Present As A Gift:

You will need a milk bottle (available in antique stores and at flea markets), ribbon, candy cane, and scissors.

First place the cocoa mix in the bottle according to the directions, above. Tie a ribbon around a candy cane for extra embellishment. Trim the ribbon ends, if needed. Include preparation directions with gift.

Also Try This:

Use ribbon to tie a decorative stirring spoon to the neck of the milk bottle.
