Gold Opulence Hot Cocoa

These hot cocoas are luxurious and decadent, made with only the finest ingredients. What's even better is that they're for you! I designed these special hot cocoas after receiving a prompt from to come up with a creative way to use jam jars. The twist with these jam jars, is that they're not meant for a gift, they're for you to enjoy!

Hot Cocoa with Edible Goldfrom

My inspiration behind this post is the need for a bit of decadence at work. Usually, I can be found with a cup of English Breakfast Tea during work, saving chocolatey cocoa as an indulgence best suited for out of work hours, but of course, there's no reason why you can't take five minutes from your busy work schedule to treat yourself to something a bit more decadent than your run of the mill cup of joe.

Of course you could take cocoa powder to work, but on its own it can be a bit blase. The real luxury comes into effect when you add creamy milk, extra chocolate and indulgences like gold lustre or maraschino cherries. Since all of this can fit into your jar, all your have to do is take the jar with you to work, scoop out two tablespoons and add boiling water and enjoy a bit of bliss!


For each hot cocoa
1 tablespoons icing sugar
2 tablespoons milk chocolate chunks
2 tablespoons powdered milk
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
edible gold lustre
maraschino cherries
boiling water (not pictured)
whipped cream (not pictured)

  1. Love these hot chocolate in a jar. I was going to make some as gifts this Christmas, but the flu hit and I managed virtually nothing.
