Hot Chocolate!

IMG_6200 This was for Hubby’s Dad & Step-Mom. I really wanted to make them something home made and fun for Christmas this year. Neither of them drink coffee or tea, but they both like hot chocolate. I wonder if Target realizes that they are a crafters dream store? How many times have we found the funnest alterables in the $1 bin? Well none of this came from the $1 bin, but alot of it did come from the Christmas baking aisle! Christmas tree shaped marshmallows, I got some plastic spoons and dipped a couple in milk chocolate and a couple in white chocolate. The cute bags came from there also. I bought some huge pretzle sticks at my local cake decorating store and dipped them in chocolate and then covered them with Christmas Tree candy sprinkles! That is a Spaghetti jar filled with NesQuick powder. I also included my boys’ favorite “Secret Hot Chocolate” recipe! The main image is from a set I won from Gina K Designs recently! (Gotta love Gina!!!). While I am quite proud of myself with all of the Christmas goodies I made this year, I am equally happy at this point to be done making anything “Christmas”, lol! Thanks for stopping by, tomorrow is Bloggers Challenge day, and on Saturday I hope to post my calendar page contributions for the Bella Calendar Swap. IMG_6202

I love Target. I just bought a couple of mailboxes in the dollar bin. I wish i would have grabbed more of them now that I think of it. Anyway, that is a cute gift set.
