To make the labels, I just created a design on the computer (in Microsoft Word), printed on white card stock, cut out, and attached the labels to the Mason jar with double stick tape.

Materials Needed for Packaging:

Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe:
2 lb box Nestles Quik
1 lb box powdered sugar
11 oz. jar Coffee Mate (Original)
8 qt. box powdered milk
Directions for making the mix: Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Sift ingredients together and store in jars.
Directions for using the mix: Fill cup half full of hot chocolate mix. Fill 3/4 of the cup with hot water. Stir to dissolve mix. Fill the rest of the cup with milk. Optional: add a dash of vanilla.
Note: This makes approximately 19 cups of dry mix. I used about 3 cups per Mason jar.
