…and mix until they are completely combined.

Each adorable test tube will perfectly fit 3 tablespoons of mix. Using a funnel helps. Once all 3 tablespoons are in the test tube, gently tap the bottom of the tube onto the counter a few times to pack the mix down. This recipe will make about 15 test tubes.

Next, add your choice of cute toppings… here I’m adding chocolate sprinkles and mallow bits. You can add anything you’d like or nothing at all, it’s your call.

  14. I’m totally not a bride so I wish a bride-to-be good luck in winning the test tubes. However, I just wanted to comment on how cute of an idea this is. I go to department stores and in their gourmet food section, they have these kind of things and they are always so expensive! Nice to see you make one so easily. :D

    My honey and I agreed instantly that this would be a perfect gift for the guests at our wedding planned for October 2014. I wanted something that I could make with my wedding party and children in advance, since we are aiming for a stress-free, joyful wedding planning experience. Our wedding funds are limited as parents of 5 children, but this gift seems right within our price range!! Winning would be an extra added bonus!!!
    Love is brewing!
