Help - I've done Snowman Soup and it was a great success - what next?

(30 Posts)

So - I love doing home made gifts - the kids do biscuits, I make chilli sauce, scrummy chocolate, fudge, florentines, macaroons etc. But two years ago, I got into snowman soup for teachers etc and it was a big hit. I want to do something similar again - any ideas oh clever and inventive mumsnetters?

Thanks trisy - shall look on pinterest ( once i work out how to use it) blush

I've seen reindeer hot chocolate cones on Pinterest. Fill piping bag with hot chocokate powder, too with marshmallows and chic chips, tie with brown pipecleaners and stick on some google eyes and a red Pom Pom for a nose.

Mistletoe, your sleighs look fantastic! I love the santa drivers! grin Whar type of choc bars did you use?

these look great, miseltoeandtomhardyplease -now all I need to find is an aldi and go shopping. thanks for sharing

I made the sleighs, piccy on my profile x

Thank you - been soo busy that I forgot i started this blush. Thanks for updating on snowman soup - I did like the idea that it was dirty water with a carrot in it!!

Liking the sleighs - My dc's would so not be happy if this was all they got for Christmas. However for niece's, ta's , stocking fillers etc, these will be lovely.

Reindeer flannels also look fab and am now off to search for elf donuts - can't imagine how hard it's going to be to dip Cherrios!!

Any more ideas oh clever people?

Omg am soooo doing these!

I have just made 65 Snowman Soups, 45 Elf Poops (rainbow drops), 50 Reindeer Poops(chocolate raisins), 50 boxes of elf donuts (Cheerios/Choco rings dipped in icing & sprinkles), 50 Snowman Poops (mini marshmallows). These are all for sale at our school fair - cellophane cones filled with the various poop etc, tied with some red & white bakers twine, and with a printed poem - I got loads of free templates for sweet little poems for all of the above. Hope the bloody parents/kids at the school appreciate all my effort even though I secretly enjoyed doing it all!!

This year the kids and I are making chocolate sleighs out of candy canes, a kit kat, 2 kinder bars and 2 freddo chocolates. You stick them together then wrap them in ribbon. We're making them for my ten nieces and nephews because I usually get all my gifts for them from the catalogue but hubby and I have decided to have a no credit Christmas so I had to find something cheap but still wanted it to look nice. I'm also giving them a homemade hot chocolate gift with mug, hot choc, marshmallows and candy cane.

I can't link on my phone but I did a Christmas fair craft stall recently & put a thread in arts & crafts, lovely crafty MNers gave me lots of ideas.

I also think there's a homemade Christmas thread with things like Christmas pudding vodka on it - mmmm!
