Snowman Soup anyone? Don’t mind if I do. This holiday season; give your friends and family edible gifts that they’ll actually devour. Who can resist hot chocolate that looks like a wintery snowman? Not me, that’s for sure!
What Is Snowman Soup?
Snowman soup is a creative edible gift disguised as an adorable snowman. This snowman soup recipe is a holiday medley filled with hot chocolate mix, a mini candy cane, mini marshmallows, and Ghirardelli peppermint bark squares.
All of these goodies are packed in a clear mason jar with a lid and handle. It’s also topped with a black ribbon top hat and a holiday gift tag! Are you feeling an overflow of cuteness right now?
Plus, with the help of a bit of bubble wrap, you can easily package these food gifts to send in the mail. These edible gifts are great for the classroom, as stocking stuffers and to melt any frozen hearts this holiday season!
Tips on How To Make Snowman Soup
Tip 1: Draw The Snowman Face. Then Stuff The Mason Jar
To make the snowman face (eyes, nose and smile) visible on the mason jar, it helps to have a white background (mini marshmallows). Draw the snowman’s facial features on the jar first, and then you can see where the marshmallows need to go. Try to draw the facial features on the top third of the jar; otherwise you will just have a jar of marshmallows. Although, that doesn’t sound bad either!
Tip 2: Find Wired Edge Ribbon
I wandered the halls of Michael’s craft store with the vision of the snowman’s hat stuck in my mind. When I stumbled upon black ribbon with wired edges, I finally found a solution.
To help shape the snowman’s top hat, it’s best to use ribbon with a wired edge. Since thin wire is stitched into both edges of the wire, you can pinch the edges of the ribbon and it’ll stay in place.
