The winter holiday season is finally here & I wanted to share an easy treat. The kids & I made these marshallow snowmen for a Christmas party we attended last week. They were a hit with everyone and the kids had so much fun making them.
Take a long lollipop stick (found in baking section of most craft stores) and stack 3 regular-sized marshmallows. Dip the marshmallows on the stick into melted white candy melts, white chocolate chips or almond bark (also found at craft stores, Walmart & Target) until fully coated. Allow excess chocolate to drip off - I found it easiest to gently twirl the stick above the bowl for a few seconds. Place on wax paper and decorate.
As far as decorating, anything goes! We made the top hats with mini peppermint patties and a Rolo candy "glued" with a little melted chocolate. You could also use a miniature Reeses cup, but we needed to keep this dessert peanut-free due to allergies.
We used mini chocolate chips for eyes, a fruit roll-up for the scarf, pretzel sticks for arms & assorted decorating sprinkles for the nose & buttons.
If your snowman hardens before you have a chance to decorate him, just adhere your decorations with a bit of the melted chocolate.
A super easy, fun & cute holiday treat that the whole family can enjoy!
