printable snowman soup poemSnowman Soup Recipe and Poem
The snowman soup recipe is equally simple, but it does require a few more ingredients. To make snowman soup, you’ll need a mug, a package of hot cocoa mix, two Hershey’s Kisses, 1 Hershey’s Hugs, some mini marshmallows and a candy cane. Put all the dry ingredients in the mug and add the printable poem:

Frosty has melted.
It’s sad but true,
But he left a gift for you.

Little white snowballs and two dark eyes.
And a nose that’s quite tasty.
Just give it a try.

Pour the package in the mug.
Then add the eyes and nose.
Use the candy stick to stir
And sip it real slow!

To make snowman poop, simply fill a small plastic bag, jar or gift tin with some miniature marshmallows. Then attach the printable snowman poop poem to let your gift recipient know what’s inside:

“You’ve been naughty this year,
So, listen, here’s the scoop.
You’re getting nothing from me
But this bag of snowman poop!”
