So...someone drank a little too much Seus juice this afternoon...or coffee, either one.
Now, on to the crafting part. I finished all the gifts for the minis in the family. I made them hot cocoa and s'mores kits. I also made this reindeer rootbeer for the nuggets I nanny for. I just used nanny as a verb.
These are so easy, they don't even deserve a tutorial. I can't remember where I saw these the first time, but if it was you, you're awesome and let me know so I can give due credit. For mine I used pipe cleaners wrapped around the bottle cap for antlers, google eyes, and red felt cut into circles. Just hot glue your goodies onto the bottles and voila, reindeer rootbeer!
For my next act, I made the s'mores kits. SUPER easy to put together. I bagged up some graham crackers and marshmallows in zip top baggies and typed out labels for each in Microsoft Word. Print, trim to fit, fold, and staple to the top of your baggies. Then I just dolled them up in a Chinese takeout container from Wal Mart one stop shop right? with tissue paper, hot cocoa packets and mini Hersheys and added directions for s'mores indoors.
I wanted my packages to be color coordinated, so I used blue and red labels with the container, tissue combo. Also, Swiss Miss cocoa has the perfect shade of blue on their hot chocolate packets!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay graham crackers on a baking sheet and top with chocolate. Place a marshmallow on each cracker and bake for 3-5 minutes, until puffy and golden brown. Smoosh another graham cracker on top and enjoy while warm!
I've heard that you've been naughty, so listen, here's the scoop. I'm running low on coal this year, so you get snowman poop.
