12 Days of Christmas - Day 8 - Snowman Hot Chocolate Cone

Wow, can you believe it is day 8 already. Where does the time go? These are so easy to do and make great teacher, co-workers, secret sister, etc., gifts. They could be for just about anyone. Who doesn't love hot chocolate? Especially homemade hot chocolate. This is done in a pastry bag. You put the products in one at a time. Tie the top tightly with a twist tie, add some ribbon and a tag and there you have it. On these I used Baja Breeze Double Striped Ribbon. I also made a two sided tag with Whisper White cardstock and Baja Breeze Cardstock. I stamped the tag with the snowman from Merry and Bright using a Basic Black Marker and colored the scarf and hat in using a blender pen and Baja Breeze Classic Ink Pad. One side of the tag has the recipe the other side has a little "Snowman Soup" Saying. I stamped the snowman on the side with the snowman soup saying and some snowflakes on the side with the recipe.

Here is the recipe:

1 1/2 Tablespoon of Sugar

1/3 Cup of Nesquick (chocolate milk mix)

1/3 Cup Coffee Mate - Italian Sweet Creme Flavor

1/2 Cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

3/4 Cup Mini Marshmallows or 4 large Marshmallows

Makes 4 cups

Boil 4 cups of water. Add all ingredeints from the bag except marshmallows. Bring mixture almost to a boil. Put in a mug, add some marshmallows and enjoy!

Here is the tag with the snowman soup saying. I did not add the candy cane to mine but that would be your "stick" or you could take a plastic spoon dip the end in melted chocolate, let it dry and wrap it in a small cello bag with some ribbon. Then add it to the cone.

It Says:

Snowman Soup
