Easy Homemade Hot Chocolate in a Jar Recipes

As a modern homesteader and a mom, hot cocoa around the holidays is also a must. But every time my kids would use those packets of store-bought cocoa powder I would die a little inside (have you ever read the ingredients on those things? Hydrogenated oils? No thank you! I’m looking at you Swiss Miss!).

Every time my kids would make a cup of cocoa with that stuff I knew there had to be a better alternative.

I made it my personal mission to find a homemade hot cocoa recipe that my kids would not only love, but that would actually be good for them!

If you’re like me, then look no further, my friends, the following recipes are for you! I’m sharing the three ways we like to prepare homemade hot cocoa that won’t take all day, including recipes for an instant cup of hot cocoa that doesn’t require stirring over the stovetop, and even a fun way to make great DIY hot cocoa powder in a mason jar (they are my favorite, ya know!).
