6th Day of Christmas in a Jar - Peppermint Stick Cocoa

Peppermint Stick Cocoa in a jar

For the sixth day of Christmas in a jar, we have a warm and minty treat. I found the recipe at MyRecipes, but left out the salt.

You will need:

    Quart Size Recipe

  • 1 Quart size jar {Amazon link}
  • 1 cup powdered milk {Amazon link}
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder Amazon link}
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy {Amazon link}
  • Canning funnel {Amazon link}
  • Ribbon, Tags, Labels, Etc. (Optional)

    Pint Size Recipe

  • 1 Pint size jar {Amazon link}
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk {Amazon link}
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder Amazon link}
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup crushed peppermint candy {Amazon link}
  • Canning funnel {Amazon link}
  • Ribbon, Tags, Labels, Etc. (Optional)


You can really use any jar(s) you'd like, but I used a Ball smooth sided 1 quart jar {Amazon link}.

Step 1

Place your candy canes or peppermint candy into a ziploc bag. With a meat tenderize, gently smash the bag to break up the mints. You want to break them into pieces, not peppermint dust!

Step 2

Using the canning funnel, layer powdered milk, cocoa powder, sugar, chocolate chips and peppermint candy. Pack the layers down just a bit after each layer. If you didn't want to use peppermint, you could use more chocolate chips or mini-marshmallows instead.

Step 3

On your tag or sticker, put these directions: "Mix contents in a large bowl. For each serving, place 1/3 cup cocoa mix in a mug and stir in 1 cup boiling water. Store remaining mix in airtight container." Decorate the jars however you'd like.
