If you enjoy making your own gifts to give, here is a sweet gift idea perfect for teachers, co-workers, hostesses, or friends. I created a small crate “basket” filled with mocha coffee mixture (see recipe below), a mini pie, and special holiday mug…
You can use any attractive container that can be re-used by the recipient, add a block of craft foam to give height to the gift items, add shredded paper, the gifts, and you’re all set. I used a flip top jar to hold the mocha coffee mixture and a printable tag from Love the Day to top it off. The pie is placed in a cute bakers box from the craft store, and wrapped with twine. The presentation is as sweet as the edible treats inside! Here is the Mocha Coffee Recipe:
Mocha Coffee Mix
- 1 cup cocoa
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup powdered nondairy creamer
- 2 Tblsp instant coffee granules
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Combine all ingredients together and mix well. Place in a resealable container for gift giving.
To drink: Spoon 1/4 cup mixture into coffee mug and stir in 1 cup of hot water. Enjoy!
Makes 10 servings.
