Baby-Food Jar Snowmen

Put a new spin on an old holiday classic with hot chocolate snowmen made from baby food jars. First gather a mix of small and large jars. Then fill the largest jar with hot chocolate powder and use it as the base of the snowman. Next add starlight mints or peppermint candies to fill a small jar for use as the center of the body. Lastly, fill a second small jar with marshmallows for use as the head, adding buttons as eyes and small pieces of wood as noses. Add a final touch with grosgrain ribbon tied around the bottom of the top jar to create the look of a scarf.
