We start by making the hot chocolate mix. Mix sugar, dark chocolate baking cocoa, powdered milk, and salt in a medium bowl until combined.
Pour ½ cup cocoa mixture into the clear ball empty ornament using a funnel.
Pour ¼ cup salted caramel chips into the ornament.
Then add ¼ cup dark chocolate chips into the ornament.It’s fun to see the layer of chocolate chips, caramel chips, and cocoa.
Fill remainder of space in the ornament with mini marshmallows.
Top with one tablespoon of red decorating sugar or any sprinkles you like.
