Are you looking for a fun and festive homemade gift for friends, teachers, or coworkers? This hot chocolate ornament gift is perfect and takes only minutes! 
When it comes to the holidays, I love easy gifts that still make you feel a little warm and fuzzy inside. This year, I wanted to recreate one of my favourite holiday season traditions of sipping hot cocoa by making hot cocoa ornaments. 

It was surprisingly much simpler than we thought it would be. This project took me less than 20 minutes, and the end result is a festive gift anyone would love. 

Using   clear plastic ornaments that are flat on two sides are the best option for this in order to keep your layers intact. Each ornament will be unique, and you can get creative with the layers and colours. You can fill your   hot cocoa mix with   mini chocolate chips,   sprinkles,   M&M’s,   candy canes… The possibilities are endless. 

Here’s how I did it: 

1. Gather ingredients to fill the ornament. I used hot cocoa mix, mini chocolate and white chocolate chips, red, green, and white sprinkles, peppermint candies, and mini marshmallows.

I used a coffee filter as a funnel to pour the cocoa mix into your ornaments. It makes less mess!
