Snowman Soup Gift Idea


Here is another gift idea I put together for my Super Saturday class. I wish I had more time to blog. Since it is just a hobby I have to find time for it when I can. I also just had my main computer crash. It had all of my files and pictures on it so it may be a little while longer before I can get everything posted.

What you will need:

Small white paper sack (I bought a 12 pack from Micheal's for $2.99)
8" long by 1" wide pieces of ribbon
A copy of the Snowman Soup poem from Gina Jane (Click HERE to buy the digital kit)
Small handful of Hershey Kisses
2 Hot cocoa packets
A snack size bag of mini marshmallows
1 Peppermint stick or candy cane

I bought the digital kit by Gina Jane from I put the label together in my paint shop pro program. Then I sized it to fit the bags. I folded the tops of the bags over about 1 1/2 inches and then punched a single hole with my hole punch in the center about 1/2 inch down from the top. I attached the label to the front of the bag, filled the bag with two hot cocoa packets, a small handful of Hershey Kisses, a peppermint stick, and a snack size bag of mini marshmallows. I finished it off by tying a piece of ribbon through the hole and over the top of the bag in a single knot and then pulled the ribbon into shape.

Another option would be to put the ingredients together in a mug.

Here is the poem:

Snowman Soup

When the snowmen
get real chilly,
they make
a yummy brew.

Here's their secret
snowman soup mix.
You can make some too!

Pour the Cocoa.
Add hot water.
with the peppermint stick.

Toss in kisses
and marshmallows.
It's sure to do the trick.

-Gina Jane

Very cute! I also saw something like this in the Chasing Fireflies catalog, but they used Hot white chocolate mix and white chocolate chunks.

I love the white chocolate mix and white chocolate chunk idea!

I found the snack size marshmallow bags at a grocery store called shoppers. They came in a variety pack with strawberry and chocolate marshmallows too. If you wanted to make several then you could buy small clear treat bags and divide a bag of miniature marshmallows. It would be a lot cheaper.
