    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.

Does that really mean that the recipe deserves 1 star though? Did you even make this? Don't make it for your young children then!

I would be more worried about the choking hazard presented by a hidden cocktail stick myself, but each to their own (!)
