Christmas always gets me in a crafty mood, and more times than not it inspires me to make something for or with my boys. My middle child especially loves to craft and create, and these Snowman Marshmallow Pops, inspired by both Pinterest and winter, are definitely something we have to make during the holiday season.
This recipe is definitely going on my list of The Best Christmas Recipes for Your Holiday Celebrations.
Want to make them with your kids? You just need to gather a few supplies.
Supplies You'll Need to Make Snowman Marshmallow Pops
Honestly, just let your imagination be your guide when gathering supplies. There are a few basics that you’ll want to have on hand, but as far as candy and the rest of your “sweet” decorations go, let your kids have fun with it and decide what to use.
Here's a list of supplies we use…
Regular sized marshmallows
Paper straws or cake pop sticks
Wilton Decorating icing in your favorite colors
Round cake tips w/ couplers
Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups
Hershey’s Kisses (Hugs would work great too)
Airheads Xtremes Sour Belts
Cake Pop Decorating Stand (Wilton has a basic cardboard stand that is affordable and works great)
How to Make Snowman Marshmallow Pops
Once you’ve gathered all your supplies, it’s time to get creative. You can use a mix of different sized marshmallows to create your snowmen. I made some triple stack and some more roly-poly.
Trim the snowmen to your heart’s desire; the sky really is the limit once you get going because it’s really quite relaxing and fun. Place a Hershey Kiss on the top of the snowman to create a sort of stocking cap. Or you can use a Reese’s Mini to create more of a traditional “Frosty” hat. Use mini marshmallows, a little icing, and smaller lengths of the Airheads candy to create earmuffs, or as my kids called them, “Awesome headphones.” Also use the Airheads belts to create scarves. Then decorate the snowmen with the Decorating Icing, forming carrot noses, eyes, smiles, and buttons.
This might be a fun activity for holiday parties and family get-togethers. Create a decorating table, and let all the kids create their own snowman treats.
