Every year I make up a small hamper for a few of my relatives with some homemade cookies, popcorn, crisps, chocolate along with some snowman soup for them to open and enjoy on Christmas Eve. If you aren’t sure what snowman soup is, it is a hot chocolate with marshmallows, chocolate and a candy cane and when it’s made up it looks as though a snowman has melted in it. It is perfect for drinking on a cold winter’s night while snuggled up watching a Christmas movie.
They are really easy to make and would make a fantastic stocking filler, for a work colleague along with a cute Christmas mug or in a Christmas Eve hamper.
What you will need:
Cellophane Cones – you can buy these cheaply on eBay
Mini Rolos or Choc Chips
How to make:
Put enough drinking chocolate into a cellophane cone for 2 drinks. Twist the top of the packaging, cut the excess off and sellotape it down. Place the hot chocolate package into another cone (this prevents the hot chocolate getting mixed through everything), top up with some chocolate chips and the mini marshmallows. Twist the top of the cone and tie off using the curling ribbon. Sellotape a candy cane to the front of the cone.
To turn the Snowman Soup into a delicious drink; heat up milk or hot water and spoon enough drinking chocolate for one mug and stir. Add in the choc chips and mini marshmallows then stir using the candy cane. Drink and feel festive.
