Looking for an inexpensive and fun holiday gift? Check out these snowman soup packets. We’ve handed them out to neighbors, classmates, teachers, volunteers and church members. We’ve even given these to the mailman.
What do you need to make these?
- Hot cocoa packets. I like to buy the big box at Costco.
- Marshmallows. I usually get mine at Target, but the grocery stores have them too.
- Candy canes.
- Sprinkles. I get these at my baking shop. But they are available at Target, grocery stores and places like Michael’s.
- Sandwich bags
- Color printer
They’re very easy to put together and a fun family activity. The kids will enjoy making these. And of course you should always have a taste tester for these. We need to make sure it’s good to drink right? ;)Once you have assembled each snowman soup packet, finish it off with a bag topper. I have free printable labels available, to download click on this link. It’s a JPEG images of the labels (four to a page). For best results, use a color printer and cardstock. If you don’t have either you can send it off to your local copy shop. My nearest one is the UPS store.
Once printed out, use a scissor or paper trimmer along the light gray lines. Then fold each in half, place over the bag and staple. These labels add a bit of charm. Your snowman soup will be well received and enjoyed.
If you want to go a step further, you can put these in a mug and hand that out. You can find inexpensive ones at the dollar store. I could see a red mug going really well with the snowman soup. You can also add chocolate such as kisses. Or a chocolate foil snowman. That would be really cute.
Enjoy! If you make these let me know how it went.
