What is snowman soup you ask? Ingredients include a packet of hot chocolate, two mini candy canes, and a little bag of mini marshmallows, and when you put them all together, it makes the most adorable gift idea. I love it because it’s super easy to put together for one person, or a whole group of people.
There are so many ways to put them together! I’ve used a mason jar or a cute mini paper sack to hold individual gifts, and for families, I’ll put all the ingredients in a paper lunch sack or clear treat bag. Add the super cute tag around the top, and you’re set to go!
For the mason jar, I piled the marshmallows on the bottom of the jar, then layered in the candy canes and hot chocolate packet.
When I’m putting together a package for a group of people (or when I use paper sack), I like to bundle the marshmallows together in a plastic snack bag with the zipper/top cut off, and tied closed with baker’s twine or ribbon.
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!
And it’s your lucky day…I’m sharing not one, but two different versions of the fun snowman soup tag!
OPTION 2: 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)!
