Here is Langan’s recipe for jingle jars of hot chocolate mix:
Yield: 4 8-ounce Mason jars (4 servings per jar)
To make one serving, pour 1 cup of milk into a small saucepan and add 3 generous tablespoons of hot chocolate mix. Bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking all the while. Remove from heat and pour into your favorite mug and top with homemade marshmallows.
For the hot chocolate mix:
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
6 ounces chopped semi-sweet chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
In a food processor, blend all the ingredients until smooth. Divide mixture between 4, 8-ounce mason jars and affix lids.
