Rich Cocoa Mix
1 cup milk powder
1 cup powdered coffee creamer
1 cup sugar
½ cup cocoa powder
Mix well and store in a labeled container.
(For international equivalencies it is a 2:2:2:1 ratio)
NOTE: A hot cocoa mix is not the same as a "drinking chocolate mix" and therefore cannot be augmented to make it into one. I have had several questions concerning that from my overseas visitors! I did a little research and tried to augment but it doesn't work out...sorry. 12/02/2011
Peppermint: add 8 finely crushed peppermint lollies to a batch of mix
Vanilla: add 5 tsp. vanilla powder to a batch of mix
Cinnamon: add 4 tsp. cinnamon to a batch of mix
Special flavors: You can used flavored coffee creamers to give it your personal touche.
I am so happy how both tumbler quilts turned out! I thought the quilts looked kind of plain when I was finished with making the top; I thought about adding some appliqued flowers or something. So I decided to try FMQ a sort of flower design on the girl one and Meandering stitch for the boy quilt. I had several firsts for these quilts: 1) first time using such a contrasting color for binding, 2) first time using a different color bobbin thread than top thread to attach binding, and 3) First time machine stitching binding onto a baby quilt. And most importantly last time I will ever FMQ with Sulky thread (If I can get away with it)!
