It's January, month of the garnet birthstone and February (not far away) with all things Valentine.

Here's a sweet, low cost gift idea for January birthdays and February loves.

Hot Cocoa Mix
2 1/2 C powdered sugar
1 1/4 + 2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
Mix thoroughly.

Place 3 tablespoons in a mug, add 1 Cup scalded milk. Stir until dissolved. YUM!

Pack in a birthday favor bag, tied with red ribbon, stuffed inside a big mug and tagged with instructions.
