This makes enough for a family to make one or a kid to make the members of his family a present from the mix.

This mix can be doubled and put in a Qt jar for larger families.

You can also scent this by adding Cinnamon or apple pie spice or Pumpkin pie spice to the mix either before you pack or when they make it.

I usually Put in a baggy and attach to jar, 1/8 cup of one of those spice blends listed above and the coloring in another baggy as an option so it is their choice. One year I made the jar's look like snowmen and in one hand was the spice and the other had the coloring.
