It has been an insanely busy week but being Teacher's Day on Friday and that celebrations were on Thursday, I squeezed some time to make little gifts for a few colleagues..
I did up a Hot Cocoa Mix after being inspired by Tasty's video on Facebook. It was pretty simple to put together but it took me 3 days to complete (the hunting of the decoration and the tying etc) cos there was just SOOO much to be done this week.
It involves 5 simple ingredients and it was a delight to make as much as it was to gift.
Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe
This recipe yields 12 mini jars + 4 large jars
(feel free to scale it down)
500g good quality cocoa powder
400g milk powder
450g castor sugar
1 packet Hershey's chocolate chips
1 packet Marshmallows
Weigh the sugar.
Add in milk powder.
Sift in cocoa powder.
Portion into jars, filling it to about 3/4 full.
Add chocolate chips.
These were the mini versions.
I tied them with some twine, a pretty paper straw, a wooden spoon and a small note..
Have fun! (:
