This year I did hot chocolate jars using Paula Deen's recipe.
I printed instructions on card stock and tied them onto the jar with a candy cane, marshmallows in a cello bag and for my hot cocoa spikers out there I included a cute little bottle of Kahlua.
I also did a kool aid playdough jar. This is fun because the mix looks white and when the water gets added it turns to the bright kool aid color and smells great! Children seem to love that.
For this jar add 1 1/4 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of salt and one kool aid packet (the sugarless little packets) to the jar. Then just add a label or tag to the jar with these instructions...
Magic Color Playdough
Empty this jar into a large mixing bowl.
Have a grown-up add 3/4 cup of boiling water
and 3 tsp. of oil to the bowl.
Mix until a ball forms and knead on a floured surface.
Enjoy your playdough!
