-8 to Christmas. Pressure on you. All you need for a last minute diy gift, low cost and handmade is immortalized in Sara’s photos. It’s a challenge to come up with a Christmas gift diy without looking patchy and improvised with what you found in the drawer of odds. But thanks to Silvia’s graphics, with this muffins chocolate mix in a jar, “I bought it just for you in a “luxury food shop” effect is assured. As you can see we haven’t decorate with too many frills, we leave decorations to you! Bells, hearts, stars, Rudolf the Reindeer, lace and ribbons, a Christmas tree, lights, an unicorn, and so on and so forth. Oh oh oh, let loose and make these jars yours!


  • 200 gr. of all purpose flour
  • 170 gr. of raw cane sugar
  • 60 gr. of dark chocolate chips
  • 60 gr. of cocoa powder
  • 16 g. of baking powder
  • vanilla extract q.s.
  • a pinch of salt

Matching soundtrack: For the first time, The script

buon Natale





There’s not too much to explain guys. Just go to the store around the corner, buy the jars you need, go home, wash them, dry them and fill them with the ingredients of which I speak above. Divided  in stripes are nicer. But in that case proportionate the weight of the ingredients to the size of the jar, I give you a couple of tips:

  1. first of all download the graphic you prefer and cut them out with care, so just glue them to the jar;
  2. weigh the ingredients one by one, in different bowls (a dirty of cocoa flour does not have visual appeal);
  3. pour the flour in two turns, contrasting it with the dark cocoa and caramel color of raw sugar.


It’s all here, “Elementary Watson”. I hope I have helped (or inspired) you with the “oh my God what I give him/her for Christmas?” question.


Merry Christmas with all my heart.

Once upon a time there was a 30 years old girl, and she has not the slightest idea what it would be at 32: one, no one but for sure no one hundred thousand. Daughter, sister, friend, mom of a dog, woman of an amazing man. Thinker fulltime, practices the Universal Love. Always looking for which direction take to and who to be doing it. Thank God everything flows. Panta Rei. And in the end, as in a beautiful garden Bahai, she will be delighted by lighting… and she lived happily ever after.
