Crafty!!  I love being crafty during this time of the year, especially when it comes to gifts.  I started thinking about what I wanted to give Jude's teachers for Christmas and knew that I wanted to do something fun and different.

Directions:

Clean ornaments.  Once clean fill them with Hot Cocoa of your choice.  I used single serving packets to ensure the proper amount in each ornament.  I also found some yummy Peppermint Cocoa to use!

Sprinkle some Mallow Bits in each ornament. 

Close ornaments - I used packing tape around the ornament just to be safe!

On a gift tag let your recipient know how much water to add the cocoa mix to and tie the gift tag to the mug as well. 

I put the mug and ornament in gift bag for easy travel.  Ready for gifting!
