Hot Mocha Mix Ornament Gift Idea



Oh wow friends we’ve entered the crazy busy season and it’s full steam ahead right? I have a super quick and easy recipe/ gift idea that is inexpensive and fun to make. This mocha mix recipe has been in our family quite some time and I love to make it. My mom used to make it and give in jars for gifts so I decided to do the same this year with a simple twist. I have a recipe card at the end of the post.


This hot chocolate style drink is delicious however it does have coffee in it, so probably not for little kiddos. You can package it so many fun ways but for this one, I decided to create little ornaments to give.


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups instant nonfat dry milk
  • 2 cups coffee-mate creamer
  • 1 cup cocoa (i used the kind with mini marshmallows)
  • 1/2 cup instant coffee powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon

Then you’ll need the containers of your choice and items to embellish the container.



First, mix all ingredients well in a bowl






I found my clear plastic ornaments at Hobby Lobby. You can find them at most crafts stores and on Amazon. 



Next, using a funnel, fill the ornaments with the mocha mixture.





Finally decorate with ribbon, greenery and homemade tags. I just made mine on the Avery website. On the tags I just gave simple instructions: Add 3 tsp to 1 cup hot water, top with whipped cream. Enjoy!
