~This is what I did this Weekend~

Made cookies with my Husband and son:

I also made Aarons teacher gifts:

I simply took a mug I got at walgreens and filled it with a baggie of marshmallows. The canning jar is filled with homemade hot chocolate from a fellow bargain hunters recipe. I also made whisks filled with chocolate kisses. Not pictured is white chocolate covered spoons. Here are the ideas.

Homemade Hot Chocolate

2 cups dry milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered cocoa (UNsweetened)
1/2 cup powdered coffee cream (like coffee mate)**

mix all together and store in air tight container. To enjoy mix 1/4cup cocoa mix with 8oz hot water,
add marshmallows if desired!

**Too make flavored hot chocolate use the flavored coffee mate! This is the time of year that holiday
flavors are out, peppermint and gingerbread. But the other flavors out there work great too
(my mom loved the hazelnut and vanilla caramel!) They have a creamy chocolate one that I used to make just
chocolate hot chocolate.

I made a couple big huge batches (I want to say you can get like 5 batches from a thing of coffee mate,
maybe more) and put in container with screw on lids from the dollar store. I typed up the directions on how
to mix and tied to the jars with a ribbon. I also made some singe serve ones in those plastic bags (the treat
type bags for cookies and such), just dumped the 1/4cup mix in and added a handful of mini marshmallows and
closed it up, added directions to add the whole bag to 8oz hot water and they looked cute! I saved some for me
and it tastes great!
