Another day ticked off our advent calendar… (Actually in our case it’s another chocolate for Shannon from her little “Advent house” and another tiny Lego goodie to build for Reece from his Star Wars Lego Advent calendar) :0)
I promised the recipe for the North Pole Snow (sherbet) I made to go along with the Reindeer lollipops yesterday.
North Pole Snow (sherbet Christmas treats)
- 1 cup of icing sugar
- around 1/4 teaspoon citric acid * (or to taste – a little at a time. I added the citric acid to taste when I made mine as I made a lot for the market)
Mix together well.
*Citric acid is available at supermarkets/ baking supply shops.
*Here’s the printable label I made:
click on label for downloadable A4 printable sheet
- Print out the label sheet onto A4 cardstock, cut out the labels.
- Glue each label onto the front of a small zip-lock bag with a glue gun.
- Fill the bag with the North Pole Snow and delight tiny people with a bag of snow and a reindeer lollipop. The kids love dipping the lollipops in the sherbet!
I also made a few Christmas trees with this design from the Silhouette Online store. They are really cute and easy to make – especially once my Silhouette had cut them out for me.
Each tree had a bag of the North Pole Snow inside and instead of gluing the label to the bag, I attached it as a tag to the top of the tree at the closure.
PS: I can’t guarantee your entire kitchen won’t be covered in fine sticky ‘snow’ – especially if there are little people involved in making these!
TIP : To assist in getting the snow into the bags, I used a small funnel – much easier (and less messy) than using a spoon.

*I cannot recall where I got the little snowman image from. I coloured it myself, but the design is not my own. If it is yours , please do let me know so that I can provide credit to you. Or, if you would rather I do not use it here in my free label printable, please advise.
