You know Christmas is near when mums everywhere start referring to snowman soup. It's become a tradition in our house and this year is no exception.
Unfortunately, being unworldly, my husband had not heard of it, and when the kids got up yesterday and declared that was what they wanted to drink we had a situation....and a frantic text at work, "wtf is snowman soup?".... I explained ... the next question "can I use mint herbs?".... some people just can't be helped :)
So, while the shops are still open and there's time to pick up any missing ingredient, let me introduce you to snowman soup.
Place marshmallows and a candy cane (or in this case a bit of candy tree) in a mug.
Add your favourite hot chocolate mix.
Add boiling water
Stir stir stir stir stir
Drink once cooled.
And it's that simple. If you have any you can always decorate with whipped cream.
