I thought with the holiday's fast approaching, I might offer my readers some simple homemade crafts / gifts to surprise your family and friends with this Christmas. With the economy trying to climb out of a recession and limited time due to family obligations, these ideas are fast, easy and fairy inexpensive.
This week I'm introducing you to Fireside Coffee - this one is always a hit and I even have people asking for it throughout the year.
--Pint mason jar, or any recycled glass jar
--Instant coffee mix
--Hot chocolate mix
In a large bowl, mix one cup each of the dry ingredients. Spoon into glass jars and replace lids. Apply a label to each jar with the following instructions:
Add 2 to 3 heaping teaspoons to one mug boiling water. Stir and enjoy!
You can also attach candy canes or chocolate covered spoons to each jar as "stirring" sticks for added flavor.
