hot chocolate bar

"Ah, I see mine is not the first offering, nor the most elegant." *

Indeed, my hot chocolate bar is not the first, nor the most elegant, but here it is nonetheless.

I have seen so many pretty ones out there.  See my "Christmas" Pinterest board for my favorites.

I recycled jars I had on hand (I recycle all jars that come through my house!), painted the lids white, added hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, candy canes, and festive sprinkles to our bar.  We have had hot chocolate every day since I put this together.  I need to pick up more marshmallows.
