{snowman soup}


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)!
