Snowman Cocoa

As the holidays creep closer and closer, you’ll need to start planning out all of your neighbor and co worker gifts sooner, rather than later!  I’m always the one taking a bag of goodies to the office or passing out cute crafts to the neighbors at the last minute!

I’m excited to announce that I have teamed up with 29 incredibly talented and creative bloggers to share some fun neighbor gift ideas. Make sure to check out all the ideas below and visit everyone’s blogs for more details.


This Snowman Cocoa is the perfect last minute gift idea for neighbors, teachers, houseguests, and co-workers.  Snowman Cocoa is easy to make and will put smiles on everyone’s faces!  You’ll need 2″ candy tubes,  (I got mine on Amazon) regular sized marshmallows, cocoa, and food writers markers (got mine at Walmart).

Draw snowman faces on all of the marshmallows and plop them in the candy tube.  Tie the tubes together with a pretty ribbon, and you’re done!

I stamped out a few cute toppers with my PSA ESSENTIAL stamps and glued them to the top of the tubes for a little extra cheer.

  1. I love the cocoa snowman idea. Do you happen to have the link to Amazon for the tubes you purchased? I’d love to make them. Thank you.

    1. The ones I bought on Amazon were 1″, which ended up being too small for my marshmallows! However, I went to Party City and bought some there. However, just look for Candy Tubes on Amazon, and look for 2″ ones. That will be perfect!

      1. Hi! I can’t find a 2″ candy tube on Amazon, but I did find one on another site. Is it 2″ in diameter and 8 in tall? Or 1 3/4″ diameter and 7″ tall?
        Thank you!

        1. I would play it safe and get the 2″x8″ but the 1 3/4″ would work too, just measure your marshmallows! My generic marshmallows were smaller than the name brand ones – go figure!

  2. I love the snowman w/ marshmallows in tubes. Very Cute! Do you have step by step instructions available? What did you use for tubes? And where do get the snowman marshmallows?? Would like to make for my daughter’s Student Government Club.

    1. DeAnna, There are not too many steps! The snowmen marshmallows are not bought, but the faces are drawn on. Read the post and you will see how I put it all together! Your daughter’s Government Club will love them!

  3. These are so cute! I think they will make perfect gifts for the kids in my home daycare. Thanks for the great idea! ⛄️
