Step 1: Fill your glass vials ¾ of the way with the hot cocoa mix.

Step 2: Fill the rest of the vial with the flavor ingredient of your choice. Here I used dried orange peel, lavender, chopped cinnamon sticks, and chopped dark chocolate to create interesting flavors. Mountain Rose Herbs is a great resource for bulk dried herbs and flavorings.

Step 3: Print out the printable gift tags, cut them out, and punch a hole in each. Tie each onto it’s coordinating flavor of hot cocoa with a gold thread. Push in the cork. All done!

To drink, mix the whole vial with 1 cup of steaming hot milk. Top with whipped cream and enjoy.
