Bailey’s Hot Cocoa Recipe + DIY Gift

The holidays are almost here and it’s time to start thinking of gift ideas! I absolutely loathe hitting the stores on the holidays, so I prefer to online shop. Or, even better, make unique handmade gifts! They are inexpensive and super easy to put together, even at last minute. They are also awesome to have on hand for unexpected holiday guests that drop in or they can make excellent party favors!

Bailey's Hot Cocoa

I love this gift jar idea. Boozy hot cocoa?? Yes, please! This mix is absolutely perfect for cold winter days after playing outside with the kids or just chilling in front of the fire.

To assemble a sweet gift for someone who appreciates all the boozy things in life (and one that is totally budget-friendly!), here are the instructions for creating one on your own!

Baileys Hot Cocoa Gift Jar Ingredients:

  • 2 C. powdered milk
  • 1 C. cocoa powder
  • 2 C. powdered sugar
  • 1 C. powdered coffee creamer (regular flavor)
  • 1 tsp. of cornstarch (optional, prevents clumping)

  • Loop the twine around the Baileys mini bottle and knot it.
  • Next tie the twine around the jar enough so that the Bailey’s hangs.
  • Include the directions: Mix ¼ C. of hot cocoa mix with warm milk and add the Bailey’s to taste. Yum!

*You could also add some mini marshmallows to the top portion of the jar.
