We are always trying to dream up ‘useful’ favors that your guests will actually take home and enjoy… and this one is terrific! Just a few simple ingredients will instantly make a delicious mocha latte mix that is sure to tickle your taste buds. These darling test tube favors will be perfect for any event, especially a bridal shower or wedding. This mix tastes best in an 8 oz cup of warm milk, but water is good too… love is not the only thing brewing around here!
- Martha Stewart Crafts darling test tube favor kit (halloween themed)
- dry creamer
- instant coffee
- dry milk powder
- cocoa powder
- salt + cinnamon (optional)
- mallow bits and chocolate sprinkles (optional)
- sticker paper
- FREE label downloads below
- recipe card print out
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup dry creamer
- 1/2 cup instant coffee
- 1/2 cup dry milk powder
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- mallow bits
- chocolate sprinkles
- Mix all the ingredients together in a blender until completely combined. That's all there is too it!
- Add 1.5 tablespoons to an 8 ounce glass of hot water or milk
…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.
Place the cork on top and you’re done! Aren’t they so cute!

These little test tube favors are just too darn cute!
