Hey there wonderful friends!I wanted to share a quick and easy holiday cutie project perfect for the kids, parties, neighbor gifts, teachers, or just some family fun!
If you did not already know, I happen to have this "thing" for mason jars...even before they became trendy. :) So when I happened upon these 1/2 pint cuties (at Wal Mart) with red and white gingham lids, I snatched them up to use for Christmas or Valentine's Day! Just adorable.
ready to serve hot chocolate drinks. I know this is not a new concept by any means but I really like the idea of them being all ready to go! Just add hot water or milk and you are ready to enjoy your yummy drinkable treat!
All you need is a cute tray or cookie tin, 1/2 pint mason jars, hot chocolate (from a packet or homemade), mini marshmallows, and peppermints. I will get to the spoons in a sec. :)
Just layer your goodies in your jar for a pretty presentation.
♥ (Seriously, I can't get over their itty bitty cuteness) ♥
I bought these cute coffee spoons at Marshall's which are a perfect size because they are mini. I am really rocking the mini thing and loving it. You can use plastic spoons (the red ones would look festive) or even hit thrift stores to find pretty vintage ones.
I piped in the chocolate rather then dipping the spoons. Much neater! I melted the chocolate in a pyrex cup in the microwave. Using a baggie, I snipped the corner and piped the chocolate into each spoon. I used sprinkles, a red m & m, a mini marshmallow cut in half, and crushed candy cane to embellish these. I popped them in the fridge until set.
To package them, I used candy bags and cut them to size and tied them off with baker's twine.
So do you like the little spin on this fun little giftable treat? What are you all making for your neighbors or teachers? I can't believe this is the last week of school before Christmas break...I need to get moving so I would love to hear your ideas. I have an idea that I will share hopefully later this week.
