With our now cooler weather and the beginning of November finally here, it is time to start planning for the holidays. One of the pressing questions I always have is what can I make to give? It isn’t always easy—especially on a budget—to come up with gifts for everyone on your list. On that note, I’ll be sharing a few homemade ideas for gifts that are great to give.
The cocoa recipe below is great to give and to receive! It is fun to customize it with your favorite spices—be sure to make extra to enjoy with your family too. This can be easily packaged in jars, cans, tins, or even in plastic bags. The example above was made using plastic pastry bags (like you use to piped frosting) and was layered with chocolate chips and marshmallows for embellishment.
