This hot chocolate mix recipe isn't the greatest due to lack of authentic chocolate flavor. However, the snowman soup concept is very charming. I will make some of these up with my recipe, put them in a quart canning jar and use the "snowman soup" concept. In my recipe, I don't use the chocolate drink mix. Instead I use dry milk, cocoa powder, sugar, etc. When I can, I add some vanilla powder to the mix or vanilla flavored coffee creamer. With mini marshmallows this surely should bring some fun to the little ones!
It is good, but it does not have a strong chocolate taste. I figured with the pudding mix it would be chocolate-y! But its really not. I'm going to play around with it some before I give it as presents. Oh, and I threw it all in my food processor to break it up a little becuase I found that it didnt all dissolve so great. Maybe I'll do less powdered sugar and more nesquik? I'll post what I discover to work best! :)
i just made these for gifts and had to try some (i tried it with milk) and it was wonderful. I did add extra unsweetened cocoa powder for an extra chocolaty flavor and made a double batch. Thank you for posting!!!
When it's so cold that you holler and whoop, It's time to bring out the Snowman Soup! Pour the packet in a mug. Add marshmallows too. And throw in these kisses that are special just for you. Now add some hot water and use the cane to stir it. Sip slowly and soon you'll feel the warm winter spirit!
This is TASTEY!!!! I made this for gift baskets and just had to try some myself, and I am so glad I did. I had to make more for the whole family; for those cold upstate, NY nights.
This sounded great, was fun to make, and looks attractive in a jar. But the resulting cocoa is so sweet that it's almost undrinkable. It tastes like hot sugar water with a hint of chocolate flavoring. Even my four year old won't drink it! When no one would drink it after repeated tries, I added some powdered cocoa to the remaining mixture in my jar hoping to beef up the chocolate flavor, but it didn't help enough. I'm going to throw away my jar of this and try something else.
This is one of the best mixes I have ever made! I am just in heaven right now. I made up some jars for christmas gifts and kept me one and I am having a very nice cup of cocoa right now! Thank you so much for sharing this outstanding mix!
Well thanks to my sweet little Tina she sent me this for our stocking swap 2005. I made some for dh and I and we sat down and enjoyed a cup and looked at the tree and villages all lit up. Yes that is right my house is decorated already :) Thanks for the recipe and thanks to my Tina for the gift.
This recipe is very easy to make, and makes a great gift. I was married in December, and for the kids we made up some snowman soup and put it in a mug for them to make when they got home. Thanks for posting.
This was easy to make and it had a very smooth taste. I made this so I coould send a sample of it to my swap partner for the Stocking Swap. I also sent her the recipe so she can be sure to rate it too. Thank you for this delicious recipe. I will be giving it as gifts during the holidays!
