Hot Cocoa DIY Gift Basket

 Hello Everyone!

One of my favorite types of Christmas gifts (and gifts in general) are diy gifts. Whether it's a handmade blanket or a homemade pie these types of gifts are gifts that someone took the time to make and thats always special.

*If you decide to add Whipped Cream to your basket make sure you put in the basket last, and that it's ready to give the recipient. You don't want to leave Whipped Cream out of the refrigerator for long periods of time.

Items that I used

-  Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate 

- Jet Puffed Mini Marshmallows

-  Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips

- Ghirardelli White Chocolate Chips 

- Holiday M &M's (Optional)

-  Reddi Wip Original (Optional) 

- Clear Craft Ornaments 3 (wash your ornaments.        before you fill them!! And let the fully dry)

- Mug

-  Bath & Body Works 3 Wick Candle: Hot Cocoa &         Cream

- Festive Christmas Decor/Figurines

- Cellophane Wrap (basket size) 

- Large Basket

I filled the 3 clear craft ornaments with white chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips. The ornaments filled the cocoa items give the basket a nice festive touch. 

This basket is a Chocolate Lovers dream! There's instant hot cocoa, and other extra chocolate goodness included in this basket.

I added cute festive decor to the basket with this gingerbread man, a cocoa sign, and hot cocoa and cream candle.

This is another version of the cocoa basket with holiday M & M's.

I used a basket from target and place it in Cellophane along with a bow. I love using baskets from Target for making gift baskets.

It's time for hot cocoa!
