A hot chocolate on Christmas Eve is a must and kids (as well as big kids) are going to love this Christmas Snowman Hot Chocolate. So easy to make and decorate, and they taste much more indulgent than they actually are.
This might just be the cutest recipe we have ever posted. Every time I look at one of the photos it makes me go ‘awwwh’. And then I get a massive craving for this creamy hot chocolate.

The super adorable snowmen that top these hot chocolates are so easy to make. You just need a couple of giant marshmallows, some chocolate sticks and a little tube of decoration icing to give them some personality. Kids are going to love decorating their own and adding silly faces.
You can use any hot chocolate you like here, but we have included our recipe for a lighter hot chocolate. It uses skimmed milk, unsweetened cocoa powder and we have sweetened it with a little honey. We did add some squirty cream (the light version) for the photos and added a spray of edible gold glitter (#foodbloggerproblems), but you can skip that part and just put the marshmallow snowmen straight on top of the hot chocolate.
Christmas Eve is my favourite day of the year. If I am honest, I am not a huge fan of Christmas Day, as it’s pretty much all over and I feel a bit sad by the afternoon. But Christmas Eve – it is the peak of all the hype and my excitement levels are off the chart! I can barely contain myself. This year it will just be me, Dave and Avery on Christmas Eve , and my Dad will be joining us for Christmas Day. But a small celebration isn’t a bad thing. We will be starting some Christmas Eve family traditions of our own, and these Christmas Snowman Hot Chocolate will be part of the celebrations.
Christmas Eve used to be about going down the pub, drinking too much and then not worrying about the hangover because someone else would be doing the dinner the next day. Well, now I am the one doing the dinner, I have to be fairly sensible. There will definitely be a few glasses of Prosecco on the cards, but Christmas takes on a whole new meaning when you have kids. Our idea of a fun Christmas Eve now is hot chocolate, a Christmas film and pretending a guy with a beard is going to fit down our blocked chimney in a few hours!
Well, that is our last pre-Christmas recipe and I think it’s a good one to leave it on. We will be back just after Christmas with a leftovers recipe that you don’t want to miss (make sure you sign up to our mailing list so that you don’t miss it). We hope you all have an incredible Christmas, whether the celebrations are big or small. Merry Christmas everyone!
