My girls have a bit of an iced coffee addiction, and we usually end up with a lot of coffeehouse glass containers that need to be recycled. Instead of immediately tossing them in the bin this week, I thought since we didn't get to build a snowman this year, it would be fun to use them to craft a snowman to get our winter fun fix in.
I have to say, I really like making these indoor snowmen much better than freezing my fingers off building one outside. Here's what you'll need to make your own Frozen White Hot Chocolate Snowmen:
• Glass Bottles (we upcycled used iced coffee bottles)
• Fabric Scraps, felt, burlap, or ribbon to make a scarf
• White Candy Melts
• Sandwich Cookies
• Decorator's Icing in Black and Orange
• Hot Glue Gun
Start your snowman by peeling off the labels from the glass bottle. You may have to use some GooGone to remove all of the sticky residue. Wash bottles in warm soapy water.
Hot Glue 3 black buttons to the the front of the bottle.
Cut a strip of scrap fabric long enough to wrap around the neck of the bottle to make a scarf. Tie into place.
Heat white candy melts according to package directions. Dip sandwich cookies into the melted candy, then place on wax paper and allow to cool. Once the candy has hardened over the cookies, draw a snowman face on each cookie with the black and orange decorator's icing.
Fill each bottle with Frozen White Hot Chocolate Mix and top each with a snowman face cookie. Serve immediately.
I like to use Lindt Classic Recipe White Chocolate Bars and Ghirardelli White Chocolate Mix (<- affiliate links), but any premium bars or mixes will yield the tastiest results.
Did your area get hit with lots of snow or did you experience a mild winter too?
