DIY Instant Mocha Mix Favors

Share this project

We’re 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!

…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 into the tube. 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.

Download the super cute ‘Love is Brewing’ label for the mocha mix and print it onto 8.5″ x 11″ sticker paper or label sheet.

Carefully cut each one out, leaving a little white edge around the outside… peel the sticky backing off and place onto your ‘mocha mix’ test tube!

Because ya’ll asked, I made a label for just “Cocoa Mix” too! But you’ll have to create your own recipe or use store bought mix!
