  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels, divided
  • 15 (about 6 tablespoons) hard peppermint candies, unwrapped and crushed into small pieces
  • 3-cup gifting jar with lid or one, 16-inch disposable plastic pastry bag with twist tie or ribbon

Directions

LAYER semi-sweet morsels, white morsels and crushed peppermint candies in gifting jar or plastic pastry bag. Seal jar with lid or tie pastry bag closed with twist tie.

Recipe to attach:
COMBINE entire contents of cocoa mix with one can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk and 1 1/2 cups water in medium saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes or until peppermint candy is dissolved and chocolate is melted. Makes 8, 4-ounce servings.

TIP:
• To crush peppermint candies, place unwrapped candies in heavy-duty plastic bag; seal. Crush using rolling pin or other heavy object. • The cocoa mix can be divided in half to make two mix gifts. Place mix in smaller jars with lids or two, 12-inch disposable plastic pastry bags.
