Snowman soup & Rocky Road

Late posting, but I just wanted to share the snowman soup gift sets that I've been making for Isac's teachers at the daycare center. I got the original idea from the lovely Angie Juda and then I have seen Rach's creations (stunning).
There was only one slight problem to do this and that was to find the mini-marshmallows. Apparently all stores are out of stock...sigh.....they even said that the Swedish supplier is out of stock, hm....... has everyone been making the Snowman soup? Don't think so. I think that people are making Leila's Rocky Road (Leila is a very popular lady in Sweden these days).
The recipe for Rocky Road - for those of you that have access to mini marshmallows will follow at the end of this post:-) So I had to cut larger one's into small pieces...

The teachers will also receive a "Änglaspel" (Rotary Candleholder) with snowmen from Pluto Products. That's what's in the little boxes.

I will wrap all of this in cellophane and add a tag for each teacher. You see the decorated tags below. The true colours are not really showing on these pics due to that it's so late and dark here now, but....
These WoJ cuties can be purchased at Roses on Paper or from WoJ directly.
And for those of you that managed to read this far - here's the recipe for Leila's Rocky Road.
Enjoy and remember to have fun making it (tasting is allowed ;-)
Kram - Anki

Rocky Road (12 bars)
600 g dark quality chocolate 70%
2 bags of "dumlekola" (Swedish toffee)
2 handfuls of mini marshmallows
3 dl of salted peanuts
1 dl of peeled pistage nuts

Melt the chocolate
Mix all ingredients together
Poor the mix in a baking pan (approx 3 cm thick layer).
Put the mix in the fridge.
When the cake is stiff - cut it into 12 bars.
