    Chocolate

    Chocolate

    chok-let

    Chocolate as we know it in pressed

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp Horlicks powder
  • handful mini white marshmallows
  • 1 cookie (small enough to fit in a jam jar)
  • 3 strawberries laces
    Strawberries

    Strawberry

    straw-bare-ee

    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

You will need

  • 1 cocktail stick
  • 1 large jam jar
  • ribbon and gift tag

Method

  1. First make the marshmallow snowman. Skewer the marshmallows together with a cocktail stick - cut off any of the stick that protrudes from the top. Use a little of the icing pen to stick a chocolate button and peanut butter cup to the top of each marshmallow stack, then draw on a face and 3 dots for buttons. Plait 3 strawberry laces and tie around the neck for a scarf. Stick the snowman to a cookie with a little more icing, then set aside to dry for a few mins.

  2. Mix the cocoa and Horlicks together in the bottom of your jar. Put the snowman on top, then scatter around the mini marshmallows. Screw on the lid, tie with a ribbon and a gift tag with the following instructions: Warm 300ml milk in a pan. Remove the snowman from the jar and add the milk. Stir until smooth and chocolatey, then enjoy, with your marshmallow snowman for dunking.

So I may be a bit late with this, but I have just discovered the 'add to my shopping basket' function - what a great idea. I have often added to a shopping list but never gone directly into my supermarket shop! Brilliant! Thankyou.

This idea is fab and simple! Made as a raffle prize for the school fair. Didn't bother with the cocktail stick, melted chocolate did the trick (and avoided any accidents!). I found that Yorkie buttons and a Rolo were perfect for the hat. I was concerned that the snowman would be a little top heavy so i buried the base in the hot chocolate powder and all was well! They were a hit at the raffle and I am planning to give them to the kids at christmas

These are amazing. Used a cocktail stick which held the marshmallows together perfectly. Then stuck on rolos for hats with melted choc. Didn't need the buttons. Used the Yorkie buttons as a base to stick the snowman onto as they are huge. I was worried the biscuit would go stale. My daughter is giving them in to sell in the christmas fayre.

These are fab! And I agree with other posters, the negative comments are unfair and uncalled for! With a little common sense and some trial & error, the kinks can be ironed out and they are great little treats! We used 1lb jam jars (found cheap on ebay) and instead of skewers, we used melted chocolate to stick everything together. Rolos are good for the hats, Yorkie bar buttons are a bit bigger than cadburys, and we used instant hot chocolate powder for the end users ease. They worked a treat, look awesome and I can't wait to give them out as Christmas presents!

These look fab.....why do people have to criticise recipes. The only criticism given should be constructive. If u can't provide a solution why bother stating anything! I for one would use a stick of spaghetti instead of the cocktail stick. It will break up if accidentally eaten. There are probably other alternatives out there!

Aaagghhh - are these massive jam jars ? Cadburys Giant buttons are not big enough to hold a Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cup, and said Butter Cup too heavy for my snowmen ! 4 tbsps of powder for one drink ? and don't get me started on the strawberry laces ! (although handy hint - if you stretch if after you have made the plait, its less hefty for your very delicate snowman and you can get two scarves out of 3 laces). A lovely idea, but for me, something seems to have gone wrong here ... Any ideas ?

Please note that Marshmallows are a serious choking hazard and not advised for young children ie 4 and under. You need to break them up in to really small pieces before giving to a child.

This is a great idea! I just made these with my daughter for Christmas presents. We did It slightly differently and used writing icing for the faces, buttons and scarves but now I'm worried that they wont last until Christmas! How long should the icing last? They are sealed in the jars. Thanks in advance.

Hi Cally90 thanks for your question. In sealed jars they should be fine for 2 weeks.

I didn't need to use a skewer, I used a little bit of melted chocolate to stick everything together. These are awesome!
