Not all Christmas presents have to be bought, in fact, some of the best presents can be homemade but I would say that I like any homemade presents that we give to look good and not look to homemade if you see what I mean.
That’s why I love making Snowman Soup with the kids, because it’s so easy and usually the finished products looks good enough to not look too homemadey! Because I’m such a lovely blogger, I thought I’d share my step by step instructions to make your own snowman soup, I’ve even included a free printable tag that you can use! 😉
What you’ll need to make Snowman Soup
Enough drinking chocolate to make two cups, mini marshmallows, chocolate buttons, a candy cake, two cellophane cone bags (I bought mine of ebay really cheaply) and some curling ribbon.
How to make Snowman Soup
Spoon the drinking chocolate into the bottom of one of the cones and using a small amount of the curling ribbon, tie the bag up and cut the excess cellophane and curling ribbon off.
Pop the tied up cellophane bag into the other cellophane bag and add a handful of mini marshmallows making sure you cover the tied up top of the hot chocolate bag.
On top of the mini marshmallows, add some chocolate buttons.
Tie the top of the bag up with some curling ribbon.
Tie a candy cane to the bag with some more curling ribbon.
I usually print out a gift tag like the one I’ve made here (my printer is having an off day so I’ll add it later to this one) or ask the kids to hand write and decorate a tag to add to the Snowman Soup.
Snowman Soup makes a great gift for teachers and grandparents and is really cheap to make in bulk. I bought around 50 cellophane cone bags on eBay for about three pounds and everything else can be picked up quite cheaply when you do your weekly shopping.
There’s lots of ideas along on how to make your own version of Snowman Soup on my Snowman Soup Pinterest board if you fancy a go yourself along with some downloadable tags that you can use to make yours look even prettier.
