Homemade Christmas: 2 more drink mixes Chai and Snickerdoodle

In addition to the Mocha Mix we made Chai Tea Mix. I also stumbled across a Snickerdoodle Coffee mix I had to try. Both would make awesome gifts alone or in a basket.

Tips: Mix up the mixes in a pitcher with a pour spout, it makes putting them in canisters much easier.
Use DECAF tea and coffee, that way your recipients can enjoy the mixes night or day!

Packaging: as you can see, I used tins and mason jars. The tins held about 1 C of mix and were $1 each at Dollar General.

Both Recipes are Gooseberry Patch:

Chai Tea Mix:
2 1/2 c powdered sugar
1 c instant tea mix
1 c powdered milk
1 c powdered non-dairy creamer
1/2 c vanilla flavored powdered non-dairy creamer
1 1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
1/2 t ground ginger
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground cardamom
1/4 t ground cloves

makes 5 c mix

add 1/3 c tea mix to 1/2 c boiling water in a mug.
Snicker Doodle Mix:
1 C sugar
1 C powdered milk (I used non-fat)
1/2 c vanilla-flavored powdered non-dairy creamer
1/2 c baking cocoa
3 T instant coffee granules (I use decaf!)
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
