Snowman Soup Recipe I

I have seen several varieties of Snowman soup on the internet. Here is my version. I buy my mugs at the dollar store ($1 each). Wash them well. I got approximately. 12 gifts out of this recipe.

  • 4 cups powdered coffee creamer
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 12 oz milk chocolate chips
  • 6 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla powder (optional)
  • miniature marshmallows
  • candy canes (wrapped) or cinnamon sticks.

Mix all ingredients well. Place 3 heaping tablespoons per serving in a small plastic bag (I used enough for 2 servings) and close with a twist tie. Place candy cane or cinnamon stick in mug. Place plastic bag in bottom of mug then place a paper cupcake liner on top of bag. Fill with approx. 15 mini marshmallows. Place filled mug into a small plastic bag or wrap with plastic wrap and tie at top (I found a mug fits well into a Glad sandwich bag if you line the handle up with the corner side). Decorate with curly ribbon, etc. Attach following on a card:

Snowman Soup

"Was told you've been real good this year. Always glad to hear it! With freezing weather drawing near, you'll need to warm the spirit. So, here's a little Snowman Soup, complete with stirring stick. Add hot water and sip it slow, it's sure to do the trick"


Add a message on the back of the card for directions: Mix 3 heaping tablespoons with hot water and enjoy! If you use enough for 2 then add a message noting there is enough for 2 mugs of soup to enjoy or share with a friend.

This was an easy and inexpensive treat for craft shows, small gifts, etc. Hope you enjoy!

You will need a frosting bag from the cake decorating aisle, dry mix, mini marshmallows, fabric or fleece for scarf, fabric glue, pom poms and glue dots. Fill bag with dry mix (use Carnation instant breakfast for white or hot chocolate for brown mix).
