Hot Chocolate MixAs for the can I used an old Stephen's hot chocolate canister, you can use anything with a lid. the Canister recipe above is to fill a Stepen's Hot Chocolate canister though (good way to recycle!) and peeled off the wrapper on it.
1 Tbsp. cocoa
1 1/2 Tbsp. Sugar
1/4 tsp. Vanilla or Vanilla powder
8 oz. milk
You will want to mix the cocoa & sugar (and powdered vanilla if you choose to use that) in a separate dish. *Heat milk up. Then mix powder mix with milk, stir well and ENJOY!
1 1/2 cups of Cocoa
2 cups of Sugar
6 tsp. of Powdered Vanilla
8 oz. Milk
Mix all ingredients well in a bowl then pour into empty canister. Then *heat up milk and use about 2 heaping tsp. of hot cocoa mix (more if you like your hot chocolate EXTRA chocolaty!) into your mug of milk. ENJOY!
*It's best to warm up the milk first and then add the mix. I feel that it dissolves much easier that way.
Then I measured out the width between the metal rims on top & bottom so I could cut my designer paper to size.
And then decorate and embellish to your taste! I printed off a little tag for my husbands and covered the outside with contact paper to protect the paper and tag from any spills or sticky hands ;)
