In my ever expanding family (in laws, nieces, etc...) we have adapted the tradition of drawing names to save a little money. As much as I love buying presents, it's kind of nice to have just one person to focus on (after the kids and husband, of course!). This year we decided to draw names as couples, and I picked my sister and brother in law. They were married just a few short months before I got married - and I know they love making fun breakfasts together. I had seen some really cute pins on pinterest that inspired this gift idea.
I scoured the internet for fun "mix in a jar" ideas. I wanted a muffin mix and a cocoa mix. There are some really cute layered cocoa gift ideas (as pictured above)...but I got to wondering...how practical is a jar of cocoa mix that is topped with marhsmallows and chocolate chips? How do you get to the cocoa underneath? It seemed like it was more for looks than functionality. Then, one of my favorite bloggers (Annie from My Baking Addiction) came to the rescue with her Hot Cocoa recipe. I whipped up a batch and then unabashedly copied her way adorable Hot Cocoa mix tag. Then I made a Dried Blueberry Muffin mix.
