This project is so much fun!!! Yes, Marshmallow Snowmen they are easy and inexpensive to make and sure to bring a smile on anyone’s face. Making them were so easy that even my children’s joined in and we ended up making an army of marshmallow snowmen. You can even customize their appearance to make them look more like friends and family members!
These marshmallow snowmen are the perfect Christmas candy to be served on a stick or floating atop a hot cup of cocoa. I stumbled upon photos of these adorable snowmen hanging out in a cup of hot chocolate on the internet and figured out how to make them on my own and honestly, it wasn’t hard at all. So today I will be sharing with you the easy instructions on how to make these tasty snowmen.
You will need the following items:
· Pretzel sticks
· Candy corn
· Mini Chocolate Chips
· Extra-long toothpicks (4 inches)
Here are a few pointers to get you started:
The pretzel sticks are a bit too long, so bite off the ends leaving about 3/4th. Try experimenting with different looks to see which you like more
You will find the 4-inch toothpicks in any grocery stores near you as the normal toothpicks won’t work. After sliding in three marshmallows on the toothpick, use the scissors to clip off the pointy ends.
Use the toothpick to poke holes for the arms, legs, and nose, and then push pretzels and an ear of candy corn in the snowman. Then poke small holes for the buttons and push mini chocolate chips into the holes.
Place some mini chocolate chips in a sandwich baggie and melt in your microwave (30 seconds at a time until melted). Snip off a tiny corner of the baggie and “pipe” the chocolate out to draw eyes and a mouth on the snowman.
Make sure to let kids know that there is a toothpick inside the snowman before they start eating it.
