Tomorrow I’ll be a guest at Glynnis Whitwer’s Sweet and Simple Christmas Open House and then I will post on Christmas Eve. Then, I am taking a break until January 7th to spend time with my family.
Need some last-minute recipes for serving or giving? Here are my favs.
hope you have a blessed Christmas!
This makes a great last-minute gift for teachers, coaches, the mail carrier, etc….
1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup instant coffee powder
1 cup hot cocoa mix
8 regular size candy canes
Blend all ingredients in a blender on high until a smooth powder results. Place in small baggies tied shut with red and white curling ribbon. Add a tag that says, “Candy Cane Cappuccino- 3 heaping tablespoons to a mug of boiling water.”
Try this easy Christmas muffin/bread recipe. It starts with a white cake mix and with a little doctoring up, becomes a pretty green and red treat! We have made this for the past 16 years and always receive requests for the recipe. Enjoy!

1 box instant pistachio pudding mix
1 16 ounce bottle of maraschino cherries, drained well
2 teaspoons all purpose flour

Make the cake batter according to box directions, adding the dry pudding mix. Toss cherries with flour after draining. Add to mix.
