Homemade Gift Idea #7 Rich Cocoa ( no pictures)

Here is the last of the homemade gift ideas posts as next Friday will be THE day! I am sorry that I am unable to take pictures today but this is easy and you all are creative and can do wonders with it. Here goes.

supplies list:
Decorative container
gift tag big enough to write a few instructions on
decorative ribbon
coffee mugs (optional)
2 lbs. can Nestle's Quick
14 oz. jar of coffee creamer
1 lb. powdered sugar
8-10 quarts powdered milk

Mix all ingredients and add as much cocoa mix as needed to accomodate the jar or container. On the back of the gift tag write the following: Use 1/3 c. for each cup of cocoa, add hot water.

Punch hole in one corner of the tag. Tie ribbon around the top of the container. Slip one end of the ribbon through the hole of tag and scoot the tag to the top and tie on. You're done. You can add a mugs to this gift or even the chocolate spoons from a couple of weeks ago or just give the cocoa. There is an idea for the tag on my Wishing for Christmas blog using a recylced brown paper bag. Just click on the picture at the top to take you to the blog. Enjoy!
