Substitutions and Variations
- Since this is a peppermint hot chocolate recipe, the only thing I would switch out or add to the mason jar would be the type of candies used.
- Crushed Peppermint Candies can be added in place of the whole peppermint candies beneath the mini marshmallows.
- Store the mason jar in the pantry with other dry goods.
- It should last for a few months, however, the mini marshmallows will not last that long. Therefore, you should try to enjoy the hot chocolate within 4 weeks of giving and receiving as a gift.
- You could use Dehydrated Marshmallows in place of mini marshmallows and the mix will last a very long time.
➡️Top Recipe Tip
