Hey there! Last week when I shared my hot cocoa bar with you I promised to share how to make marshmallow snowmen and hot cocoa bombs with you.
So today I’m making good on half of that promise.
How to make marshmallow snowmen.
Can I tell you a secret?
They are so easy to make I could have called the neighbor kids over and let them do it while I napped!
Here’s what you will need to make the snowmen.
* Marshmallows – the big kind
*Scissors- I used my kitchen scissors, cleaning them super well before using.
*A new artist liner brush
*Gel Food Coloring or tubes of icing
Optional – a 4 x 4 x2 box and bakers twine
Take a small plate and liberally sprinkle powdered sugar on it.
Next to the plate, lay out a piece of parchment paper or wax paper.
Using the scissors, cut a marshmallow in half.
Dip the sticky side of the marshmallow ( the side that was cut) into the powdered sugar.
tip: if your marshmallow shape is a little wonky, press down in the center to make it round again.
Place your marshmallow – powdered sugar side down – onto a piece of parchment paper.
Now for the fun part!
Painting your snowman’s face.
Now don’t panic if you aren’t an artist.
We are talking basic shapes here.
Dip a little gel food coloring out onto a paper plate.
Then using a clean, new artists brush get the brush wet and dip into a little of the food coloring.
You want it to be thin, but not watery.
Paint your snowman!
Remember I said basic shapes?
As you can see here I used circles for the eyes, mouth and checks and a wonky triangle for the nose.
If your food coloring bleeds a little, that’s okay.
If it bleeds too much, you have used to much water…
My snowmen are far from perfect, but I think that makes them even cuter!
I know that most of us aren’t going to any parties this year, but wouldn’t these be a great hostess gift?
Or even a sweet treat for family and friends?
I found these boxes here and they were perfect for six to eight snowmen.
To keep them in place in the box, simply wet a small circle on the back side of the marshmallow and place in the box.
The water creates a small sticky spot that holds just enough that they won’t move inside the box, but still allows for easy removal.
Tie your box up with ribbon or bakers twine, add a festive embellishment and a tag.
You now have a cute, sweet gift!
Don’t forget to make a few for yourself!
They are just the cutest floating in a cup of hot chocolate!
Once your marshmallow snowmen are done, store them in an airtight container.
See? I told you making marshmallow snowmen was easy.
Chocolate Bombs are coming soon, I promise!
Until next time…..
