If you are on Pinterest, you’ve probably seen a million images of various DIY holiday mason jar cookie and cocoa mixes. I made a trip to Michaels for some other supplies and saw some very cool blue mason jars on sale. So, after a little research and some inspiration from our chocolatier friend, David Wolfe, I came up with this vegan hot cocoa mix, and if I say so myself, O.M.G. it is divine!

And because I used a couple of unusual ingredients, like cayenne pepper and maca powder, it is a bit healthier, has an amazing flavor (not spicy just has extra depth). Maca powder is said to help boost libido and help mood swings for women — helloooooooo!? All a green diva needs this holiday season!

Mix up all the dry ingredients (everything but the marshmallows) in a big mixing bowl. Whisk it together good, and use a spoon if you need to mash up the cacao powder balls.
