Spiced Coffee Creamer Mix

This makes a wonderful last minute hostess or Secret Santa gift.  Place the mix in a pretty jar with a colorful bow, and  no one will know that you just made it the day before. For a great gift presentation, place in a rustic basket, with two Holiday napkins and two Christmas mugs.  Add a few homemade cookies in cellophane or Saran Wrap tied with a red and green ribbon. I like to add a bell or two to the ribbon. Be sure to include the instructions as to how to use the mix.

4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
2 c. coffee-flavored liqueur
1 1/2 c. nondairy powdered creamer
1 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground allspice

Ina large bowl, mix together all ingredients using lowest speed of an electric mixer.  Cover and chill overnight. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.  To serve: spoon 1 T. of mix into a mug.  Stir in 6 ounces of desired hot beverage such as coffee, wine, cocoa, or milk.

YIELD: about 4 cups of mix
