Christmas Mice in the Kitchen!

009

Last year I posted my attempt at making a cheaper version of Garnet Hill’s Chocolate Mice. That post has been deleted. One of my first blogging friends,  Mary over at  Life in a Small Town sent me a link for a better different recipe for Chocolate Mice.  I had the chance to redeem myself!

A Simple Christmas in a Mason Jar

Who doesn’t love mason jars?   So I am constantly finding ways to make easy décor items that can be changed out with the seasons and holidays.  Here is my latest treat for the teachers.  Don’t worry they are not just getting a dozen candy cane balls! Our school does a cash collection. But, this is to help the teachers rally through the next two weeks:

I was thinking you could sneak a Starbucks card in the center for a Peppermint Mocha!

They also make  great décor items for small spaces!  These would easy to send to your college student who lives in the dorm or a friend renting a small space in the city!

Merry Christmas!
