Hot Chocolate in a Jar

Happy Sunday! I'm sure that many of you, like me, have been crazy busy with work, kids, and holiday plans. I haven't had nearly as much stamping time as I'd like lately! I did get a fun project completed for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club. The challenge this week is Gifts in a Jar. I used a Perfect Packaging Square Jar to package some of my Hot Chocolate Malt Mix.

I stamped Flopsey and cut out the image, then I mounted it over embossed cardstock. It looks like the snow is falling around Flopsey, doesn't it? I used Liquid Applique on the mitten cuffs and hat pom pom. The dotted ribbon is from the Gifty Girl MFT Kit.

This Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly paper was perfect for my project. I used Marvy punches to make the circles for the lid, then I zig zag stitched the paper to the cardstock. The Heidi Swapp ghost snowflake was just the right size to top the circles! I printed out the instructions and created the tag. The mug is from the set Coffee? Tea?. I paper pieced it and added more Liquid Applique to the top. The tag is tied around the button so it can be removed and used again!

Since it's Sunday, I have a recipe for you! It's the recipe for the hot chocolate mix! This makes a BIG batch, which you can then package into several jars or bags. It really does taste like a hot chocolate malt! :)

Hot Chocolate Malt Mix

25-oz. pkg. powdered milk
16-oz. jar powdered non-dairy creamer
16-oz. jar hot chocolate mix
13-oz. jar malted milk powder
1c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla powder
2 c. mini marshmallows

Use a wire wisk to combine all ingredients. Equally divide mix into jars or plastic zipping bags. Attach instructions to each. Makes about 13 cups.

Thank you so much for the visit today! Have a great day! :)
