Shari and I are always excited when our good friend Chris from Tupperware sends us recipes.
This time she has put together a couple of her favorite coffee and tea recipes to share with all of us. So with that in mind-here is what Chris has to say.
With the bit of a chill in the air, I’ve been enjoying more flavored coffee & tea recently. It’s nice to sit down with a good book and a cup of Cinnamon Spice Coffee or Russian Tea.
I thought that with the all the Holiday entertaining and gift-giving just around the corner, you might enjoy a couple of Tupperware’s “Make Your Own Mix” flavored coffee and tea recipes. I even have a storage & gift giving idea for you!
As you may know, Tupperware’s Modular Mates® Containers are essential pantry and cupboard “tools”. Virtually air and liquid tight seals lock in freshness and keep food tasting great.
The Oval 1, 2 or 3 is perfect for storing one or more recipes of flavored coffee or tea. One of these containers full of a mix, topped with a bow and a candy cane would make a nice girlfriend gift. The large containers (4 & 5) would be great for cookies, brownies and candy too!
Speaking of brownies, the photo below shows the “Sand Art” Brownie Mix in a Tupperware® Spaghetti Dispenser.
The container holds a pound of spaghetti, and there is a portion-measuring insert just under the seal. Just layer the ingredients, add the baking instructions and a bow and you’ve got a hostess or teacher gift that tastes great and is useful too.
Now, for those recipes! These are two of my favorites:
