Remembering Martin Luther King Jr With a Sweet Treat!

Hey everyone!  Hope everyone is having a fab break.  I can't believe it's almost over.   I blinked and break is over!    

My Christmas was amazing!  Got so many goodies and loved spending time with family because it doesn't happen a lot since we are all so busy.    So it was nice QT.

Before I show you my latest updates, let me show you what I made for my fiance's huge family.  I decided to make his huge family these sweet little treats.   I got this idea from Planting Happiness.  

   It was so easy to make!  I decided to pass on the alcohol attached to the jar and decided to attach chocolate covered pretzels instead.  Unfortunately you can't see the pretzels from the shot but trust me it's there and it was so darn good.

This was so easy to make!  let me walk you through it.

You will need:
*mason jar
*hersheys dark cocoa ( big box )
*bulk mini marshmallows
*mini chocolate morsels (big bag)
*peppermint candy 

Give each jar about 1 cup of hot cocoa.  Then firmly pack the mini marshmallows.  I added about a 1/4 cup of choc. chips and then a few peppermint candies.  

I bought a yard of Christmas fabric and placed it on top of the mason jar lid then turned the top.   I added the card last minute.  

I think it was so easy and about $5.50 to make.  Not bad!  I made about 8 jars and gave 1-2 per family.  They loved it. =) 

I'm still munching on the pretzels. 


I was able to update some oldies but goodies and so happy I can share them with you today.  I have updated the craft and printables for my Martin Luther King which is coming up in just a few weeks.  Here's the newest and more
