drink mix question

I was given two large bags of orange drink mix (think tang) and no one likes it. What are some things I can do with it to use it up? I hate to just throw it away. The only thing I can think is to make popcycles (sp?) from it.

    You can use it to make Hot Spiced Drink Mix (see beverages on

    budget101 Mixes), Spiced Tea Mix (again see bev.) Orange Cappuccino Mix.



    These make nice additions to gift baskets.



    You can blend it with Vanilla Ice cream and a bit of milk to make

    orange dream shakes.



    You can make a Faux Orange Julius drink.

    My daughter made Creamsicle Cookies in a Jar as Christmas gifts last

    year and one of the ingredients was the dry orange drink mix. Let me

    see if I can find the recipe and post it. You can make up some cookies

    for yourself, or use it to make the jar mix as a gift.

    Here is the recipe for the Cookies in a Jar. Hope this helps:





    Dreamsicle Cookies In a Jar

    Makes about 30

    1/2 cup powdered orange flavored drink mix, such as Tang

    3/4 cup white sugar

    1 1/2 cups vanilla baking chips

    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon baking powder



    Combine the flour with the baking soda and baking powder. Layer the

    ingredients in a clean glass wide mouth quart sized jar, starting

    with the Tang, then sugar, vanilla chips and ending with the flour

    mixture. Press each layer firmly in place before adding the next

    ingredient. Attach a recipe card with the following instructions to

    the jar.



    Dreamsicle Cookies

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    2. Empty contents into a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup softened

    butter, 1 egg slightly beaten and teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix until

    completely blended.

    3. Roll heaping tablespoonfuls into balls. Place 2 inches apart on a

    lightly greased baking sheet.

    4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12 to 14 minutes or

    until tops are very lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes on the sheet

    then remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

    Makes 2-1/2 dozen

    A friend of mine swears tang is great for deep cleaning the dishwasher

    (without dishes). Just put 1/2 cup or so in it and let it run normally.
