a holiday treat with SRM Stickers (& recipe share)


SRM sent the team some of their newest products---these wonderful clear tubes---that are perfect for a whole variety of things.

if you don't believe me, check out the last three days worth of inspiration over on the SRM blog. my teammates came up with some seriously rockin' ideas!

at just $1.00 per tube, they are so convenient for gift giving and party favors too. many of the SRM sticker sentiments are the PERFECT width for placing along the lid too. i've used stickers from the Express Yourself Recipes sticker sheet.

i plan on tucking both tubes into a coffee mug along with an ornament for teacher holiday gifts this year.
the product on the tag is last year's holiday collection, Jolly By Golly, from Cosmo Cricket. looks like it's still available for purchase on their site.

the back of the tag holds the recipe for the hot cocoa and what to do with the Andes mints. i like to melt mine into a cup of hot cocoa. Mmmmmmmmmm. pure bliss.

if you're a convience type person, you can easily fill these with the pre-package hot cocoa packets. two packets fit perfectly into one tube. (that's what you see in the photos above)

Recipe to make your own cocoa mix:
(this recipe makes a HUGE batch....plenty to share, plenty to keep)

1 large box of instant dry milk
11oz powdered non-flavored coffee creamer
1 (16oz) container of Chocolate Nestle Quik
1 c. powdered sugar
Mix and store in airtight container.

Fill mug 1/2 full with mix, add hot water. Stir and enjoy.
For an added treat, add 1 or 2 Andes mints to your hot cocoa.

this recipe is one i was introduced to via my step-mom and since discovering it, i struggle to drink any other cocoa. it's delish!
