We are ditching the hot cocoa this season and taking full advantage of our new Hawaiian Home Pro Shaver Shaved Ice Machine to create fun holiday treats, like this snowman shaved ice idea my kids absolutely loved!
The Home Pro Shaved Ice Machine comes with 5 ice mold cups with 5 lids (perfect for my family of 5!) you can fill up with water to create your own ice blocks and make the fluffiest snow-like ice in a matter of seconds. The good news? You can also use ice cubes if you didn’t have enough time to prep the mold cups ahead of time, which makes so convenient to enjoy a cup of shaved ice whenever your heart desires.
To make it extra special for the entire family this holiday season, set up a shaved ice station with syrup bottles in the flavors of your choice and mix-ins, such as peppermint crunch and candies, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless. The kids have so much fun customizing their shaved ice treats.
Once you place the ice block in the machine individually, you have to wait 5 minutes before shaving it. We used this time to draw the snowman face on the cup. Such an easy and cute idea to spruce up simple plastic cups! All you need is black and orange permanent markers and paper towel to dry the surface before drawing on it.
Place your snowman cup on the drip tray and start shaving away! Add syrup and toppings of your choice to create the ultimate holiday shaved ice treat!
If you are planning a small holiday gathering or casual birthday party, you can use disposable acrylic or paper ice cream cups. For your convenience, consider using ice cubes instead and be sure to prep the snowman cups a day ahead.
These snowman shaved ice treats make a delightful idea if you are hosting a Winter Wonderland or even a Christmas in July party. The possibilities are endless.
A shaved ice machine makes a wonderful holiday gift to someone who enjoys entertaining at home and creating sweet memories with their family. As a mother of 3, I highly recommend. It will make such a great addition to your party inventory!
Happy Holidays, my friends!
