After making a few batches of white hot chocolate, it only seems right to share the love. Certainly a plain jar of hot chocolate goodness would be gift enough.
But why not make it a little extra festive? A snowman just makes it that much more fun!
All you need to get started is your jar of white hot chocolate, a couple of pipe cleaners, some red felt. Of course some scissors and a hot glue gun will help too!
Wrap the felt around the lid of the jar, tacking it on with a few drops of hot glue.
I used a scrap piece of felt to give the illusion of a scarf and added the pipe cleaners as earmuffs.
MiMi braided some embroidery thread to tie off the snowman’s hat, then I painted on a carrot nose. I searched high and low for my black tempera paint, but couldn’t find it.
So, I grabbed a good old Sharpie and added his eyes that way. It wasn’t what a I had in mind, but it ended up being easier and worked just as well!
Wouldn’t you be happy to get a snowman filled with hot chocolate? It is perfect for a warm treat after building a much colder version of a snowman outside!
