Father's Day "Beer" Mug

Here's a fun, inexpensive and easy to make Father's Day gift.


  • 1 glass beer mug
  • 1 large bag of butterscotch candies
  • 10 large marshmallows
  • cellophane and ribbon


Take glass beer mug (I bought one at Walmart for $2.87) fill 2/3 of the way up with the butterscotch candies ($1.00 at Walmart). Fill remaining area in mug and a little higher with marshmallows.

Wrap in cellophane and wrap with ribbon. I left unwrapped so you could see detail.

What a cute idea!! You could also use root beer barrels for 'root beer' for the non drinkers! Thanks for the idea.

Coud use the smaller mini marshmallows too, to resemble the "foam" or "ice cream" on top.

Cool.. you could use this idea for many things! Keep the marshmallow topping and put chocolate candies or cocoa packets in the glass! Very Clever!
