You can also attach a peppermint stick or candy cane to top of the jar with the raffia or ribbon.

Add one package of Raspberry or Cherry unsweetened dry beverage mix(like Kool-Aid) to the cocoa mix. You may want to add a bit more sugar when adding a package of drink mix. Add one teaspoon of cinnamon to the cocoa mix For Mocha, fill your mug with coffee instead of water.
