What We've Been Doing Lately.....


The girls wanted to give their little ballet friends something for the holidays. We finally decided on "Snowman Soup." There are a lot of references to it on the Internet if you google it. I modified one of the poems to make it appropriate for our little friends and then we got busy assembling. Basically it is hot chocolate mix with some yummy add-ins like...a few chocolate chips, some mini marshmallows, and a candy cane for a stirring stick. We made home-made hot chocolate mix...which is our favorite. I always keep some on hand. You only have to add hot water....and yummy add-ins if you want.




And for the Christmas ballet recital that the girls participated in...we took some chocolate crinkle cookies. The girls had a lot of fun rolling the dough into balls and then rolling the balls into powdered sugar.



They sure were yummy!!! Kind of like a brownie in a cookie!!! Tonight we are making snickerdoodles for our neighbors....nothing like the smell of cinnamon baking!!! YUM!!!

I've seen the snowman soup all over the 'net - cute idea for your girls to give away. We make chocolate crinkles here. My daughter's turn out better than mine! LOL
