One of my favorite Christmas gift ideas is Snowman Soup! It’s so darling, easy to put together, and perfect for neighbors, teachers, friends, co-workers, and more!

What is snowman soup you ask?   Ingredients include a packet of hot chocolate, two mini candy canes, and a little bag of mini marshmallows!  I use a snack bag with the ziploc part cut off for the marshmallows, with a piece of bakers twine to tie it shut.

You can package them for individual gifts, or larger for family or office gifts.  For this post I created individual snowman soup packages, using white cookie bags I bought at Michaels.  They are the perfect size for one serving!  I printed the tag on to cream cardstock (you can use white too), then used a clothespin to attach to the top. You could also punch a hole in the c0rner and use twine, bakers twine, or ribbon to tie it on.

I like doing these for neighbor gifts, and if I’m packaging it for a whole family, then I use brown paper lunch sacks. I fill it with as many packets as there are people in their family, add the candy canes and small bags of marshmallows.  Those bags fit a lot!  You can do the same thing to close it–use a clothespin, ribbon, etc.  I’ve also used cardboard takeout boxes, which are always super cute, but they won’t hold more than 2-3 servings. They also look cute in large mason jars!

I created two different sizes of printable–one about 3 3/4 inches, the other is larger at 5 inches.  To download the tags, click on the link, and save the pdf file to your computer.  Print on cardstock (white or cream)!

      1. Ive made these over the years with GREAT success .. BUT, I personalized my cups for each individual .. AND U can use the same “poem” but for those who do NOT like Hot Chocolate, use Apple cider and a cinnamon stick .. “they” love the gifts I give every year

  1. This is such a fun new way to give hot chocolate! I have some tweens on my list this would be great for! thank you….

    1. It’s a great friend gift—you can even give it in a cute mug, if you want to do a little more! xoxo

    1. Thank you so much, Sally!!! I worked hard on that poem, lol, so I’m glad you like it. :) Merry Christmas!!!

  2. I love this idea. I plan on making these for my Granddaughters 2nd grade class for Christmas. I made reindeer food for her class last year. I know this will be a big hit. I will also make some for our dirty Santa exchange. So fun.

  3. So adorable! Thank you for sharing!
    I love all the printable a that you are so sweet to share with us.
    May I ask what programs do you yes to create yours? I thought you mentioned PicMonkey at one time. I’m still such a design novice!

    1. Sure! I use Photoshop a lot, but I like to use Picmonkey too! It’s free and user-friendly, so I do a lot of tutorials using it, because everyone has access to it! Let me know if you have any other questions!! xoxo

  4. I love this poem – I am using these for a public school party and some of the poems I found were a little too “Christmassy”. This one is perfect! Quick question – the hot chocolate mix I bought says to add milk only. Is there a way I can change the word water to milk in the poem? Thank you!!

  5. Hi there, is there anyway you can send me the file in layers? I wanted to see if I could change the colors in photoshop to match my twins birthday color theme. Was thinking it would be cute for favors for their snow tubing party. I just adore it! She is doing a blue and red theme for the party. Thanks!

  6. I love your pdf. Thank you for sharing for the “not so creative” type of people – like me! Question, when using card stock for these types of label what lb would you recommend? 65 or 110? Thanks again!
