Snowman Soup for Gifts
Snowman Soup Recipe I
I have seen several varieties of Snowman soup on the internet.
I buy my mugs at the dollar store ($1 each). Wash them well.
I got approximately. 12 gifts out of this recipe.
4 cups powdered coffee creamer
1 cup cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
12 oz milk chocolate chips
6 oz semisweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp.. vanilla powder (optional)
Miniature marshmallows

Candy canes (wrapped) or cinnamon sticks.
Mix all ingredients well. Place 3 heaping tablespoons per
serving in a small plastic bag (I used enough for 2 servings)
and close with a twist tie. Place candy cane or cinnamon stick in mug.
Place plastic bag in bottom of mug then place a paper cupcake liner on top of bag.
Fill with approx. 15 mini marshmallows. Place filled mug into a small plastic
bag or wrap with plastic wrap and tie at top (I found a mug fits well into a Glad
sandwich bag if you line the handle up with the corner side).
Decorate with curly ribbon, etc. Attach following on a card:

Ten Cake Recipe

Ten Wedding Cake
Looks like a pound cake but tastes much better.

Ingredients:
1 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup solid Crisco
4 cups cake flour
3 cups sugar
1 cup milk
6 eggs
1 tsp. favorite flavoring


Directions:
Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour and milk alternately, then the flavoring. Pour into a greased and floured tube cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for one hour and 15 minutes or until done. Enjoy. If you use plain flour instead of cake flour take out one tablespoon of flour per cup used for the same results

Recipe card

Meatloaf Parmesan Recipe

Ingredients:
2 lbs. lean hamburger
2 eggs
1 medium onion
3 Tbsp. teriyaki sauce
4 Tbsp. milk
2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. parsley


Directions:
Beat the eggs and mix with hamburger. Add teriyaki sauce and milk, mix well. Grate the onion into the mixture with a cheese grater and blend well. Add bread crumbs and mix. It should just hold together, add more crumbs if needed. Put in a brownie size pan. Top with sauce, spreading to cover. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1/2 hour.
Mix the 2 cheeses together. Remove pan from oven, sprinkle cheese over top covering meatloaf. If you like dishes really cheesy you can add more mozzerella. Sprinkle parsley on top.
Return to oven for 10 minutes or until cheese just starts to turn brown.
Serve with your favorite pasta dish.
