Hot Chocolate Gifts
I'm crazy. I was mounting some of my stamps today and saw Colette and just had to make a jar of hot cocoa out of her. I think I had recycling on the brain because of a post I saw earlier today but I was totally inspired. I think this will make a wonderful secretary's Christmas gift. And it was so simple too! The jar was even on my counter. The paper band is from Bo Bunny. The snowflake on the lid is Bashful Blue run through my Create A Flake 2 Spellbinder die. Colette was coloured with copics, run through my Nesties and then distressed around the edges with Copics. The ribbon is wired from Michaels.
The Hot Chocolate mix is so easy and I think better tasting than anything that you can purchase. It's simply one part Fry's Dutch Cocoa and 2 parts sugar. Mix together in the jar. For hot cocoa, simple add one tablespoon to one cup of milk and heat. I love to add my aunt's homemade marshmallows to it but I know I'm spoilt in that regard.
