Gift In A Jar Cappuccino Mix

Colleen Sowa


This year, besides the canning jars, I have some really cute Christmas jars from the dollar store! (photo of some on this page). I am excited to get started!

I give these as a little gift by themselves or add them to a Christmas basket full of home made goodies!

*** If you want a stronger coffee flavor.. add more coffee powder... the same goes for all of the ingredients... customize the recipe and make it your own!
