These Snowman Hot Chocolate Spoons are a fun and simple winter treat the kids can enjoy making and eating during the cold winter months.
Snowman Hot Chocolate Spoons
Growing up, my siblings and I would love to play outside in the snow. If it wasn’t extremely cold we would be outside for hours whether that was building a snowman, sledding down a big hill we had behind our house or just getting in a snow ball fight. Now that I am a mom myself I completely understand the reason my mom, after spending 30 minutes getting our hats, gloves, and boots on, would tell us that we needed to be outside for longer than 15 minutes! 🙂 After we were done playing we would end our outside activities with a snack that always included hot chocolate. These snowman hot chocolate spoons are such a fun winter treat you can make with your kids and they really bring back my childhood winter fun.

How to make Hot Chocolate Snowman Spoons:

** For another variation: dip your plastic spoons in melted milk chocolate and top with festive sprinkles. Allow to harden and serve with a cup of hot chocolate.
Can I use these spoons with just a mug of hot water?
We prefer to use these spoons as an extra “splash” of chocolate to an already made cup of hot chocolate. It’s fun to watch the snowman melt in the hot cocoa for the kids. You can certainly add these spoons to just a mug of hot water but you may need two spoons or more to get that desired chocolate taste.
Can these hot chocolate snowman spoons be made ahead of time?
Absolutely! I love how this is an inexpensive treat that can be made and stored for later! They are great individually wrapped and to give away as a yummy winter treat. Store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks for a yummy and fun addition to your warm cup of hot cocoa or even coffee.
