"I have been making and selling this at local craft fairs for the past several years. You would not believe how fast this moves off the shelves. Young and old love this!
"Very cute, good for giving out when there are lot of children at holiday gatherings."
"What a great recipe. Made this to give to my grandkids on Christmas morning and I know they are going to love it as much as I loved making it. I'll bet this becomes a Christmas Tradition with our family and maybe even some of their friends as this would be a great gift for them to share with friends. Next time I'm going to make sure I have those little gift bags though. This time I only had zip lock bags and it's just not as pretty, but I don't think they'll mind a bit. I went to the site to look for the cards but it's not in use anymore so just made my own card with a cute little snowman on it and that meant I could even personalize it more. Thanks for posting this awesome recipe."
"I bought snowman goodies bags last winter at the post Christmas/holiday sales. This was a great way to use them. I gave them to my classes and my daughter gave them to her classmates as well. We used full size candy canes so the kids could actually stir the cocoa with the candy cane. This has become a tradition. I make them every year!"
"Our first grade teacher at school always passes this out to her student's at Christmas. It is a big treat. Instead of using Hershey Kisses, she she uses just regular chocolate chips. She wraps the chocolate chips and the marshmallows in little plastic wrap and then ties with a ribbon. She prints the "Snowman Soup" saying on cardstock and it has a snowman at the top and some snowflakes on it and then staples it over the ziploc bag."
"This is a favorite tradition in our home! On the first snowfall that stays, this is always made. Perfect for a special treat on a snowy day or for a quick holiday gifts."
"Our church gave these out to members for Christmas! Great idea!"
"Excellent recipe! I used homemade hot chocolate ( Recipe #20713 ) and holiday marshmellows (stars & Christmas tree shapes) and packaged in snack-sized ziploc bags. Then packaged 8 individual bags into qt sized bag along w/ the instructions and shipped to my grandsons. They rec'd the package yesterday and they were so excited. Thanks for a great idea for something special for the holidays!"
"Just made a batch of this with my kids tonight! They thought it was delicious, and my 6 year old in particular had fun making up bags with the ingredients to give away!! My son said, "I think it's better than 5 stars; I think it's as good as 500 stars!" :) Thanks for a fun, kid-friendly recipe! "
"These are precious! I gave these out to the kids at our Christmas party. Thanks for a quick and easy fun idea for the kiddies!"
"I love this for gifts for all the special people that make life nicer. It's not expensive but it looks it! Thanks, everyone on my list got this. "
"I made this with my Cub Scout den and they had a blast with it! They made one for themselves and one as a gift. They couldn't wait to drink them! Fast and easy! A real kid pleaser!"
"Did this for my office and it was a hit! Cute idea!"
