The best gifts are food gifts. Am I right? I’ve decided that everyone in my life would benefit from a creamy mug of hot chocolate. And since everyone is different these Hot Chocolate Sticks are the perfect gift to personalize- just dip and stir! If you aren’t gifting these you can set up a fun hot chocolate bar for a crowd!

The recipe comes together quickly with little fuss. Dunk in a mug of warm milk and stir until melted. Crushed peppermint is a personal favorite and popular this time of year.

But can we talk about salted caramel?

For gifts I think popping a marshmallow on top is adorable. I used JET-PUFFED Vanilla and Chocolate Swirled Marshmallows. You may also use a large JET-PUFFED Marshmallows, or for a fun festive look you can use any of JET-PUFFED’s seasonal varieties such as Snowman Mallows, Peppermint Mini Marshmallows, Gingerbread Mallows, Holiday Mallows or their NEW Jumbo Red Velvet Cupcake marshmallows.

Or keep it mini with my favorite JET-PUFFED Mallow Bits.

If you make these in a silicone mini cupcake pan they easily pop right out. Alternatively you could use paper liners.
