  1. Use the jelly jar lid to cut 10 circles from the patterned cardstock by tracing them on the back and cutting them out. Glue a cut out printable jar topper to a piece of cardstock. Glue each topper to a lid and set each aside to dry.
  2. Mix sugar, cocoa, milk, and salt until combined. Transfer two tablespoons of dry mix into each jar.
  3. Top the cocoa mix with a handful of peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. Top those with miniature marshmallows.
  4. Twist a brown pipe cleaner onto each side of the metal ring and curl the ends of each.
  5. Place the metal lid back inside the ring and twist onto the jar. Glue two eyes and a red pompom nose for Rudolph onto the front of each jar.
