The usual homemade cookies are always a fun idea
but this year, I was thinking something a little different.
While shopping the Dollar Tree the other day picking up pretty white candles
I bumped into a couple things that inspired this years sweet treat gift.
A fun glass container filled with
a favorite cocoa mix and peppermint sticks.
Here's what you need:
$1.00 glass lidded jar (Dollar Tree)
.69 cent chunky peppermint stick (Dollar Tree)
Cocoa either in a mix -$2.00 for 2 boxes- grocery store
(or you can mix your own if you would like using cocoa)
pretty Christmas ribbon and a tag
After cleaning the jar
Simply fill it with a favorite dark chocolate cocoa mix
I also placed a candy cane inside for a peppermint stirring stick
These candy canes are huge and chunky and about 8" long.
Totally love them.
I decided to break them into pieces to give with the mix
but you can tie them up with a ribbon and leave them full size too.
(Before I could get a picture of an unbroken one
a little sneaky candy cane thief made off with it)
Using favorite ribbon or candy cane yarn
simply tie a greeting or gift tag to the jar and it's done/
So simple and easy to put together in about 5 minutes
and for just $3.69
but such a sweet treat that is perfect for gift giving.
or to just to have on hand to enjoy with a friend while
chatting and making cranberry garland too.
Hope your weekend is going great!
