Christmas in July 2015 day 1 / Noël en juillet 2015 jour 1

CIJ day 1 / jour 1

Let’s start with something to put us in the Christmas cozy spirit.

Hot-chocolate  and baileys

Yields about 6 jars


  • About 10-12 packets of hot cocoa
  • About 3 cups of mini-marshmallows
  • 6 bottles of mini Baileys
  • Festive ribbon or twine
  • 6 pint size Mason jars
  • Plus candy canes, white chocolate or regular chocolate chips for garnish

1.                Make sure jars are clean. Pour hot chocolate mix into the jar, filling about 1/3 - 1/2 full with cocoa. Then, stack marshmallows on top. Add other garnishes on top of marshmallows. Place the lid on top and tie a piece of twine or ribbon around the bottom of the lid. Carefully tie a small bottle of Baileys or Kahlua to the twine.
