      Hot chocolate and cookies are the perfect holiday treat, and can be put together to make a beautiful holiday gift.

      An empty basket
      Homemade cookies (any type)
      Plastic wrap
      Mason jar
      Fabric square, about 10″ x 10″ (remnants, or holiday sewing leftovers)
      Paper label C
      Cocoa mix ingredients
      1 cup powdered sugar
      1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
      1/2 cup non-dairy cream powder
      1/4 tsp. salt
      2 3/4 cups instant nonfat milk powder
      1 cup miniature marshmallows, if desired

      Wrap cookies (any type will work–sugar cookies cut in holiday shapes are easy and very festive) in plastic wrap. Wrapping two to four cookies at a time will usually keep them from breaking. In a large bowl, mix all cocoa ingredients. Fill mason jar with cocoa mix (this recipe makes enough mix for three to four jars). Place fabric square right-side down on table. Put jar in center, pull up corners to top of jar. Use ribbon to tie fabric around the neck of the jar. The edges that are sticking up can be trimmed so they are even, or left as is (using pinking shears to cut edges of fabric makes the jar look much fancier). Affix a label to the lid of the jar with directions for using the cocoa mix: “Add 3 to 4 Tablespoons to 1 cup hot water.” Arrange jar and cookies in the basket. Add a bow if desired.
