READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Annacia

This is another that I had put away and forgotten about. I like the cinnamon-ginger. These are good any time of year if you like flavored coffee or tea!

WOW, what a wonderful recipe!!!!
My sis and me made the ginger-cinnamon version to give-away to friends in a coffee/tea themed gift basket and they loved this sugar specialty! They have been using it for quite some time now and definitely want the recipe or a refill. :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this terrific gift idea with us, Annacia!
