Snowman soup is one of my favourite things about Christmas!
We’ve been making our version of snowman soup, both as a treat for us and as a little homemade gift for family and friends, ever since the kids were very little and it’s become one of our favourite family traditions.
I’m a fan of making snowman soup as a gift for people because (a) it doesn’t cost much to make, (b) it’s fun and a little bit unusual and most importantly of all, (c) it’s really easy to make yet it doesn’t have to look homemade.
I do love the idea of homemade christmas gifts but I must admit that when I make something for someone as a gift, I do prefer that it doesn’t look homemade – does that sound odd?
I’m sharing my step by step instructions with you today so you can see how we make snowman soup but if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you’ll find the link to my snowman soup Pinterest board where there are so many variations of this that you will easily find one you love!
What you’ll need to make Snowman Soup
Enough drinking chocolate to make two cups, some mini marshmallows, chocolate buttons, a candy cane, two cellophane cone bags (I bought mine from Hobbycraft for a pound) and some curling ribbon.
How to make Snowman Soup
Start by 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 inside the second 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 you can add some chocolate buttons or chocolate chips.
Tie the top of the bag up with some ribbon but just before you tie the bow, hook in the candy cane so that’s secured to the cellophane bag too
I usually print out a gift tag like the one I’ve made here to explain what snowman soup actually is but my printer is having an off day so I’ll add it later to this batch or I might even just ask the kids to hand write and decorate a tag to add to it instead.
Snowman Soup makes a great gift for teachers and grandparents and is really cheap to make in bulk.
As I mentioned, 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.
