Great Idea - Make it Now!

Last Christmas, I made a bunch of these to give as gifts. They were quick and easy (although I did spend a bit of time embellishing the tea towels, but you don't need to) and they made such cute gifts for coworkers, friends, and family. I didn't blog about it here last year, so thought I would put these up now so you can get started on some! You can watch the video from the You Can Make This blog here: We Whisk You A Merry Kiss-Mas.

All you need is a kitchen towel, a wire whisk, some Hershey's Kisses in a small cello bag, some ribbon, and a gift tag. Warning: last year, when I went looking for whisks in December, I had a hard time finding them - seems like a lot of people had the same idea! So if you think you might want to make some of these, you might want to start looking now! And all whisks are NOT created equal, either. If you are giving this to a serious cook, consider buying a "better" whisk - sure, you can find whisks for $1.99-$2.99 at your local grocery store, but they aren't worth buying...just a thought...

Along with the video, the link includes a download for the gift tags.
