Another fun way to warm up your guests is to send them home with these cute DIY cocoa favors. These favors are really cost effective, the jars can be picked up on sale at craft stores, hardware stores etc (these came from the dollar bin at target WITH the cute tag and sticker¦SCORE).

Make sure to leave the booze off for those non drinkers in attendance.
