Makes 12 gift mugs.

I got this recipe out of the newspaper about 10 years ago. (I'm cleaning out my files and ran across it. I thought, I've got to post this!) I gave these away to the sisters in my ward one year. You can buy the mugs from the thrift store or the Dollar Tree. It was a fun, inexpensive gift to give away.
