Chocolate And Cappuccino: Gifts To "Jar" The Senses
Contributed by: NAPSA
(NAPSA) - For many people, nothing warms up a cold winter day like a mug of hot chocolate or a steaming cup of cappuccino. Now it's possible to package that feeling for a delectable holiday gift. All it takes is a jar, a little decoration and a little imagination. Just add water.
The gift of a dry mix-whether it's for rich, creamy Hot Chocolate or for an aromatic Cappuccino-can be a delicious way to give a taste of the holiday spirit to the hard-to-shop-for people on your list. Recipe jars like these can also be given for other events, such as housewarmings, tree trimming parties or even to heat things up on Valentine's Day.
These two recipes offer the natural sweetness of Domino Sugar, for a fresh flavor each time a cup is brewed. After layering the dry ingredients, add a personal touch by selecting colorful fabric, ribbon or trinkets and attaching a recipe card. Other ways to make a gift jar unique include pairing the mix with homemade holiday biscotti or cookies. Or add some zip to the mix itself with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows or cinnamon sticks.
