We got out of school early this year. That means, as of today, I'm off for 5 weeks! But even more exciting, Cora is finished with daycare! We've come up with some new arrangements for next semester, and I think we'll all be happier. So today I delivered these Christmas gifts to her caregivers and my co-workers.
These were really economical to make in bulk, and all the supplies and ingredients worked out perfectly to make a dozen, so there aren't a bunch of leftovers from this project.
Here's what I used (based on a few recipes I found online and a bit of taste-testing):
4 c dry milk
1.5 c sugar
1 c cocoa
1 c creamer
.5 c ovaltine
Mix and divide into 12 portions. I used 8 oz mason jars and filled them about 3/4 full. Add chocolate chips and mini marshmallows to top. The labels are from paper source. I love chartreuse!
