Snowman Soup!

This week brought the first truly cold air to our area (and by truly cold I mean less than 50 degrees and yes, I know that is spring for many of you, but for us this is winter -- brrrrr!) and my kids could hardly wait for what they knew was coming along with the cold snap.

The season's first Snowman Soup! A tradition of hot chocolate making we do often during our colder months (or weeks as it usually is every year).

13 Ingredients for Snowman Soup:
  • 5 cups powdered milk,
  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup powdered non-dairy creamer
  • boiling water
  • mugs
  • Miniature marshmallows
  • Miniature chocolate chips
  • Candy canes
  • whipped cream
  • red sprinkles
  • green sprinkles
  • a camera
So, here's what you do:
Mix the first 4 ingredients together in a bowl. Then scoop out a few spoonfuls for each mug of hot water you are making (save any left-over powder in a jar for next time). Then let each child add marshmallows and chocolate chips to their mug and give them a candy cane to stir it up with. Top it off with whipped cream sprinkled with red and green sprinkles. Last, grab your camera and be ready to capture the first sip -- you'll be thankful you did!
