Yummy Yule Makings

Saturday, December 24, 2011
So for Yule I decided to be all domestic. I not only cleaned the whole house (which my grandma later trashed), but I decided to make some gifts. We as you know are broke this year. So unfortunately I did not have money to buy gifts for everyone like I usually do. Honestly my mom gave me money to get the kids BIG gifts from us.

This year I actually prefer the gifts I made though. I think it adds something more to it, plus I could make them for everyone. Thanks to Kiki we also had cool photo gift cards to hand out. So we made homemade hot cocoa mix to give out to everyone with the cards.

AJ even helped me make it!
We modified a recipe I found on Modern Parents Messy Kids. I doubled it but also took out the espresso. The original recipe is here. What I used is below.

  • 2 cups of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 2 cups of powdered milk
  • 1 cup of chopped chocolate chips (since I didn't have mini ones)
This made about 18 two person servings. I printed gift tags again through Modern Parents Messy Kids but linked to here. I used Santa gift bags that I got at Michael's. Here's the finished product.
