Today I'm joining in the Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash! Jen @ Tatertots and Jello is hosting today and the topic is Homemade Gifts. I have a few things that I'm working on...like some little boxes filled with homemade macaroons and peppermint bark for neighbors and friends, and some handmade ornaments made with mod podge and chipboard for teachers and grandparents. Also, over the weekend, we made a large batch of homemade Creamy Hot Chocolate Mix and Peppermint Marshmallows. So YUMMY! The recipes come from a Christmas Gooseberry Patch Cookbook.
Here's the ingredients:
For the hot chocolate: In a large mixing bowl, put 1 pound chocolate drink mix, 1 1/4 cup non-dairy creamer, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 box (26 1/2 oz) powdered instant milk. Stir together. Divide into small jars for gift giving. (Serving directions: add amount desired of hot chocolate mixture to an 8 oz cup of hot water or milk. Stir, serve, and enjoy!)
For the peppermint marshmallows: You put 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 t. peppermint extract into a gallon size Ziploc baggie. Mix the peppermint extract into the powdered sugar by shaking the bag. Put a 10.5 oz bag of mini marshmallows into the baggie and shake until all the marshmallows are coated. Divide up into smaller bags for gift giving.
Hope everyone is having a marvelous Monday!!♥
