There’s just something about a DIY Christmas gift that warms my heart. You can show your friends how much you care about them without breaking the bank. I like to keep a few jars of Mint Coffee Mix on hand to give to friends during the Christmas season. These are also great hostess gifts or party take-home favors for your guests.

Mint Coffee Mix & Free Printable Gift Tag
Mint Coffee Mix is so easy to make and it’s a fun and tasty gift. You can make one jar or as many as you’d like. I also keep a jar for myself to have on hand when family and friends come over to visit. The mint adds a delicious holiday taste to the coffee mix.
Mix instant coffee granules, powdered non-dairy creamer, sugar, cocoa, and crushed peppermint candies together in a blender or food processor.
Pulse until well blended.
Place in a pretty jar, add the FREE printable gift tag and your DIY Christmas gift is done.
I use decaf coffee for the jar I’m keeping for myself. That way, the older grandkids can partake and they have declared this delicious!
Helpful Hint: I usually double the recipe and use a larger mason jar. You could even triple the recipe.
