Snowman Soup easy DIY hot chocolate gift.
Start by Inking your design on the cup. Fuzz your stencil (this removes some of the stickiness since the silk screen stencils love to super stick to glass! Lay it flat ensuring no ripples or bubbles are happening (or ink will leak under).
Take a small amount of ink & gently pull across the stencil design. You do not need to push hard, just light pressure across.
Scrape off the excess ink.
Slowly & gently remove your stencil.
Allow your ink design to fully dry. Depending on your humidity this can take a day or two, you can speed it up with a hair dryer or fan.
Once your ink is fully dry, heat set it to help the permanency of it. Place it in a cold oven, set oven to 350F, once oven is at temperature set 30min timer. Allow cup to cool along with the oven.
Although some have run their cups through the dishwasher, I personally suggest gently hand washing for long lasting designs.
FILL your cup!
Add in a packet of Hot chocolate, chocolate kisses, candy cane, instruction poem & "freeze dried snowballs" aka Marshmallows. I wrap up regular mini ones.
I have even seen some people like to dehydrate their marshmallows in the Air Fryer (adds to list of things to try!).
