White Chocolate hot coa-coa & Blog Candy

Ya know how when you are trying to hurry...every thing seems to go wrong? Well that is what happened tonight! I was determined to get this posted as promised by the end of the week...and I'm cutting it close! First I have a frappuccino bottle, that has been up-cycled into a little gift- perfect for this time of year. I used Cookbookin' papers & stamp, nesties, and ribbon to decorate the bottle. I actually wrote the little poem & printed them and the tag with instructions out.
Here is the recipe for the white chocolate hot co-coa. 1 1/2 cups skim powdered milk; 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar; 3/4 cup non dairy creamer (french vanilla) you can substitute for other flavors if you want; 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips. Mix dry ingredients together, then spoon 3 to 4 spoon fulls into mug & add hot water...you may need to add more mix if using a larger mug.



















Now for the blog candy give away! You can enter to win by leaving a comment on this post. You will be entered twice if you let me know that you are a "follower" of my blog. For a third entry you can post a link back to my blog, on your blog announcing the blog candy. Be sure to let me know if you do this so I can make sure you are entered 3 times. I will leave this open until Christmas Day! On the 26th of Dec. I will put all the names
in a bowl-(checking to make sure how many times to enter each person)-and I will have my son draw out the winning name. Here is a picture of the goodies PLUS I will add some hand made things....like cards, tags, gifts, etc. This is open to anyone! Goodluck!
There are 4 punches, 4 wood mounted stamps, 4 clear stamp sets, a set of watercolor pencils in a carry case, 6 tags, 15 vintage images, ribbon, brads, pearls, & chipboard alphabet plus the handmade items that I will add as a suprise!
