I have 3 children. My oldest is in middle school and changes classrooms throughout the day. My younger kids are in a title 1 school and also have many specialized teachers that they see every day. They are all very fond of these very devoted teachers, and wanted to give each of them a present for Christmas. I came up with a "jar mix" take off that the kids could help me with.
We mixed up a very large batch of hot cocoa mix and spooned it in the jars with a couple inches left at the top. Then, we filled the rest of the jar with marshmallows.
Labeling these jars was pretty easy too, and we decorated the top with a piece of holiday fabric. The teachers have all loved them. And the kids are very proud of their creations. Here is the recipe for the hot cocoa mix:
Mix together. Use 1/3 cup mix to 2/3 cup water. Heat and enjoy! This mix made about eight 2 quart jars with room for marshmallows on top.
