Christmas RAKs

I've seen these little treats before in catalogs, and recently saw Robyn, from My Pink Stamper make them also. Well, when I saw how easily she made them, I decided to give them a go, and I think I have a new favorite Christmas goodie. These are meant for my DS to give to the staff at his school, and if I time it right, I should have plenty for any last-minute gifts I may need. The recipe is: 2 cello bags. 1/2 C.  of instant Hot Cocoa mix in one bag. Cut bag to desired length, insert into 2nd bag, add 1/4 C. White chips, 1/4 C. chocolate chips, 1/2 C. Mini marshmallows, and tie bag with ribbon. I added tags made with TBBM, and JOTS. I also stamped the tags with a Christmas stamp. Paper is from Recollections. Ribbon from my stash. Super easy! Thanks Robyn for sharing these, they're lots of fun to make. Also, if you'd lie to now the cost-the add up to about $1.00/gift. I found the cello bags at Hobby Lobby for $1.99/25 bags.
YUM!
