When Thursday arrived and I was supposed to have gifts made for four of my bestie’s for our annual family Christmas party Thursday night you might say I was in a bit of panic. At ten o’clock that morning I literally had no idea what I was going to make. But, after mentioning it to another friend of mine that I was desperate for something quick and easy (and good) to make she texted me the recipe for this Sugar Hand Scrub that her daughter makes. And she saved the day!
This literally took me all of 5 – 10 minutes to make and it was a hit. All you need is 1 cup of sugar.
Two tablespoons of corn syrup.
1/3 cup mineral oil. (Add more if needed – I did)
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract.
Little touch of food coloring. The recipe called for green, but I chose red instead.
You just mix all the ingredients together. Double or triple it when making for more than a couple of people depending on the amount you’d like to give.
I put it in these cute little jars from the Dollar Store.
Added a bow and some ornaments for that Christmas-y touch.
And, just for a little added “cuteness” I added these tiny, little silver teaspoons to scoop it out with.
Then I bagged them up into these adorable Christmas bags that I purchased – where else? – the Dollar Store….
And had them all ready for the gift exchange that night with these four besties.
I owe it all to my other bestie, Connie! Thanks Connie for the tip! It was a life saver!
Happy Decorating and Merry Christmas!
