It's been a long time!

I'm so sorry for my long absence from posting! I just got my desk unburried a couple of days ago and will hopefully have time to create more very soon!
I did manage to make some teacher's gifts this week:

I used Close To My Heart papers and inks in Cranberry and Star Spangled Blue.
Other: Mat Stacks Summer collection, Just Rite Stampers - Baking Stamp Ensemble, Nestabilities scalloped circle, Coluzzle circle template.
I put home made hot chocolate in the cellophane bags and hand dipped marshallows.
Here are the recipes:
Hot Chocolate
1 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa powder
3 Cups dry powdered milk
1 1/4 Cup sugar
Dash of salt
Mix ingredients together and spoon into bags (be sure the bag is inserted into the mug before filling).
Peppermint Marshmallows:
1 tsp Water
3-4 tsp Confectioner's sugar
Candy Canes - crushed into small pieces
Make a glaze with the water and sugar. Dip half the marshmallow in the glaze and then roll in the crushed candy canes. Place on wax paper to set.
These taste great in the hot chocolate!
