Carl the Drinking Chocolate Snowman

Make Christmas a little more fun with Carl, the Snowman! 

Have you heard of Carl the Drinking Chocolate Snowman? Made by Kate Weiser Chocolate, Carl first soared to fame when he caught the attention of Oprah and made it onto her 2018 list of Favorite Things.

With a belly full of premium hot cocoa mix and a head full of marshmallows, Carl can be melted into enough delicious hot chocolate for the whole family in a matter of minutes!

Carl is the original hot cocoa bomb, and he is BIG. Rather than dissolving him in a mug like most other hot cocoa bombs, he is meant to be melted in a pot of milk on the stove. You’ll get perfect creamy results every time – no clumps with this premium chocolate!

Carl has a female pal too! Carla the Peppermint Drinking Chocolate Snowman is full of peppermint hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. When prepared according to the directions, she’ll yield enough hot cocoa for 5-8 servings – just like Carl.

And, this year, they have added to the fun! You can round out the whole snowman family with the Lil’ Carl Mini Drinking Chocolate Snowman 3-pack!

These huge cocoa bombs always get rave reviews… 

I gave Carl to some of my friends for Christmas and to some of my little nieces… he was a big hit with both. They sent me text pictures of him melting into delicious hot chocolate. The little ones especially enjoyed it! If you are looking for a great little gift for the young and old chocolate lover… look no further than Carl the Drinking Chocolate Snowman!! He’s a HIT!!

My five year old absolutely loved this! The hot chocolate was so delicious! We are making this a yearly Christmas tradition now! Go buy this, y’all!

We have been buying Carl and Carla chocolate snowmen (and women) since they came out. It’s become a holiday tradition for all of us, kids and adults. We wait until Christmas morning to make the hot chocolate to go with breakfast. Love love love this product!

Carl, Carla, and Carl Mini are sold at Neiman-Marcus, and they’re a splurge at $32 each, but if you do it as a once-a-year tradition it’s worth it! Note that shipping is $9 making your total $41 shipped.

Don’t wait until the last minute – we’ve got gift ideas for everyone on your list!

    Dang! I can’t get the free shipping code to work. It says applied but still charging me $9 shipping at checkout.

    I just spoke to customer service. These items don’t qualify for this free shipping promotion as they are shipped directly from the vendors warehouse.

      Well, that stinks! Thanks so much for letting us know. I’ll get the post updated.
