Making your own gifts to share with others on the holidays is nice way to show how much you care for and appreciate your family and friends.  I think it’s so cute to fill a jar with ingredients so the other person can easily make the recipe and know that it’s from the heart.

Hot chocolate mix is easy to put together since it only requires a handful of ingredients and it doesn’t require much work or extra ingredients for the person making it either. I ended up making both a low carb and a paleo version depending on if the person you’re giving the gift jar to is watching their sugar or not.  Or maybe you just want to whip up a batch for your own family to enjoy together.

Happy Holidays!
