My favorite thing to do is to combine two or three jar/bags to create a rounded gift. My classic blend is a hot beverage and a cookie mix. This year I am doing S'mores Cookies with Snowman Soup!

Snowman soup is really just hot chocolate mix which is packaged with mini-marshmallows. Tie a candy cane around the outside and tie on a classic poem for Snowman soup:

Was told you've been real good this year.

Add hot water, sip it slow.
It's sure to do the trick.
