Mocha, Anyone?

I was looking around pinterest the other day, and ran across this DIY Martha Stewart favor idea.  Somethingturquoise.com gives a nice ingredient list and step by step instructions. This is an adorable, idea, and best of all, it’s consumable.  I think the best favor ideas are those that the guests can eat or use and then…they’re gone.  Who really wants to keep an item from someone else’s wedding?  I read once where the bride and groom gifted their guests with Waterford Christmas ornaments with their name and wedding date engraved on them.  But would you REALLY hang them on your tree?

SUPPLIES:

  • Martha Stewart Crafts darling test tube favor kit (halloween themed)
  • sugar
  • dry creamer
  • instant coffee
  • dry milk powder
  • cocoa powder
  • salt + cinnamon (optional)
  • mallow bits and chocolate sprinkles (optional)
  • sticker paper
  • FREE label downloads below
  • recipe card print out
