Homemade Gifts: Snowman Soup

This is more of a gift idea than a recipe, but great to make up and pass out around the holidays.

For each "soup" you will need:

1 packet instant hot cocoa, any flavor or variety
2 candy canes, taped together to form a heart
1/4 c mini marshmallows OR 3-4 Christmas shape/color marshmallows in a snack bag
1-2 Hershey kiss es

On the card/paper of your choice, this message:
Was told you've been good this year
I'm 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, sip it slow,
It's sure to do the trick!

If you are doing a few, you can just put the ingredients into a cute over sized mug and put the note in with it.

For a large batch, I put everything into a quart bag, and fit the note to the length of the top of the bag leaving the top half blank, then fold it over and staple to cover the zip top.

You can also go to Organized Christmas for really cute bag toppers like whats shown in this photo!
