Marshmallow Snowman Treats

When I designed my Let It Snow Collection of holiday printables (which are still 50% OFF right now), I made some sweet little snowman treats for my photo shoot table. Quite a few emails have come in asking for a tutorial, so I thought I'd do just that today.

Aren't they the cutest?





So here's what you'll need:

As pictured: Fudge icing, large marshmallows, Karo syrup (light colored), Rolos, mini Oreos, some black and orange confetti sprinkles (I have some left over from Halloween), and white sparkling sugar. You'll need some wood skewers and a clean paintbrush, and I also added a few things at the end of the project -- toothpicks and mini marshmallows.


Step 1: Take your large marshmallow and with a clean paintbrush, brush some Karo syrup all around the side of the marshmallow.


Step 2: Now roll your marshmallow in the white sparkling sugar and set aside. Repeat these 2 steps for all of your marshmallows -- you'll need 3 marshmallows per snowman.


Step 3: Now it's time to add on the cutie pie face. Using your paint brush, dot the back of your confetti sprinkles with a touch of Karo syrup and then apply to your sugared marshmallow.


Step 4: Next, skewer 3 marshmallows together on your wood skewer to make a snowman.



Step 5: Now for the hat. Pry apart your mini Oreo cookie and use the side without the creme attached. With a butter knife, apply a small amount of fudge icing to your Oreo, unwrap a Rolo candy and press it onto your iced cookie.




Step 6: Making the arms. Now take a toothpick and press it through the side of your middle marshmallow on your snowman. Add 2 mini marshmallows at the ends of your toothpick for hands.
And that's all! Quick, cute snowman treats! Great for a fun after school project or even a class holiday party. With little ones, you could even have the pieces of the snowman made first and then let them put them together and add the hat and arms.

These are very cute! I was wondering if you have tried any other product for sticking the sugar or eyes on with besides Karo Syrup? Maybe thinned out icing? Saw this on Tidy Friday! Love your blog!

These look yummy!! Great to do one the days the kids have a snow day. Wonder if dipping them in white chocolate would work.
