Snowman Soup

It’s SO hot chocolate weather! Even my kids are starting to ask for it! I did recently buy an extremely large box of lowfat sleep inducing malted drink but nothing beats a real hot chocolate!

Craft fairs are starting in the next few weeks and we’re planning some items for a special stall we might do at a school fair.

Among these items will definately be Snowman Soup!! For those not familiar with it- its simply hot chocolate powder with freeze dried snowballs (marshmallows!) and a candy cane to stir the whole thing with! It’s a bit of fun and they make great little gifts. I’m planning some variations and wondering whether I can bring myself to create ‘Reindeer Poo’!! (choc raisins!!)

A cellophane bag with a pretty topper that seals it can be adapted to hold lots of mini gifts and I had fun messing around with my Stampin’Up! Heat and stick powder. You stamp any image with versamark and then sprinkle with the powder. Heat the powder, it turns to glue and then you can sprinkle glitter over.


There are several poems if you search- this is the one thats on the back of my tag;

When the weather outside is frightful,
Snowman Soup can be delightful.
May it warm your spirit and your soul.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

When you feel a chill or Burr,
Use the peppermint stick to stir.
Add hot milk and sip it slow.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

The fine Cosmo glitters are gorgeous and coordinate with the SU colours. The topper looks far more sparkly in real life but I reckon you get the idea! The three stamped images are from the Season of Joy set, which is great value for 8 stamps at £24.95 . It is by far my favourite set and judging from my workshops- a lot of people love it too!!

I am now sitting, covered in glitter- not because the Heat & Stick isn’t good- (its really good stuff-and only £3.25) but because I’m such a messy tyke!- oh well, I’ll give the Mums at school something to laugh about (again!!!).
