Are you still looking for ideas for Christmas gifts? I always love getting and giving homemade food items and this year I decided to gift my own homemade hot chocolate mix. I used a recipe I found by Alton Brown and made a few additions. I gave one batch a kick with a little cayenne, another batch a little spice with some cardamom, and to the final batch (for my kiddos) I added chopped up peppermint bark. Obviously I had to try each batch to ensure their quality and I can assure you, they are fabulous. Package them up in some cute jars and use these free printable labels (2 1/2″ circles) and you’ve got a quick and easy gift with stuff you probably already have in your pantry. Happy gifting!

Can you share where you sourced those containers? Thanks!
Laura, the manufacturer of the jars is called Weck. You can order from their website (http://www.weckjars.com) but I got these particular ones from Crate & Barrel – they have a good selection available at their stores and online. You can also find some on Amazon. I hope this helps!
