I am finishing up some of my handmade Christmas gifts so I thought I’d share some here. I make these lattes-in-a-bag every year. They are super easy to make and really yummy to drink. Here are the instructions + a giveaway for a mug rug to package them up with!
– Treat Bag Toppers. You can buy holiday themed ones or you can click this link to download a sheet of six printable ones that I made for you: LoveYouLatte_KaylaAimee
– 3×4 Treat Bags (you can pick these up at your local craft store)
– Dry Adhesive
Place the following ingredients in a bowl and mix:
- 3 tablespoons powdered instant dry milk
- 1 ½ tablespoons instant coffee granules
- 1 ½ tablespoons sugar
- ¾ teaspoon unsweetened cocoa or 1 tablespoon dry flavored creamer
Pour into a 3×4 treat bag and seal. Print and cut out the treat bag toppers. Fold each one over the top of the sealed treat bag. I use a little double sided tape or a tape runner on the underside of the treat bag topper to attach it.
This is what the backside looks like. Also, I wasn’t kidding about garnishing with whipped cream. I love whipped cream. When I was a kid I used to squirt it into my mouth straight out of the can. Then I saw a segment on the news about huffing and for weeks after I worried that I had been accidentally getting high all that time. I was a neurotic seven year old.
If you like, you can add crushed peppermints, chocolate shavings or marshmallows above the mix to make it look extra festive. I had no marshmallows left because I ate them all. I have a problem. I like to package a couple of these and some candy canes inside an inexpensive pretty mug. And I was thinking that an even cuter touch would be to add a mug rug.
Luckily for me, my friend Mandie makes really cute mug rugs. And she sells them in her etsy shop. She sells other cute things too, like the pillow I’m lounging on as I write this. And when we were talking about love you lattes she was all “if you want to, you can give away a mug rug from my shop”
So I am! Just leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win your choice of a really cute mug rug from Mandie’s shop. One more Christmas gift to cross off your list! * GIVEAWAY CLOSED. Congrats Katie G!
