DIY on a DIme: Peppermint Milk

Mix up this simple hot drink mix as a quick and easy gift. 

I first mixed up this minty milk concoction about ten years ago when I found candy canes on sale. For ten cents a box. I couldn’t help but experiment with them.

My 12yo has remembered that experiment all these years. Recently, he asked me to make it again.

It’s incredibly easy and makes a great gift. Powdered candy canes are mixed with dry milk powder. The result is a flavored hot milk beverage — or a flavored creamer to add to cocoa, tea, or coffee. Easy peasy.

  1. oops I completely forgot about looking at Christmas lights! We better get on it. How is it that the year with the crazy early Thanksgiving, thus giving us so much extra time, is the year we’ve done like NOTHING???? I have shopped and sent Christmas cards, so not nothing. But none of the fun stuff.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
