Marshmallow Snowmen

My husband and I went to a concert last night so a friend came over to babysit.  He gets the prize for  best babysitter, because he came prepared to do a fun food project!  He had a bag of marshmallows, a tube of black icing, Jelly Bellys, Airheads, and pretzel sticks   Add in one excited 6 year old and you get these adorable snowmen!

The pretzels are used to hold the marshmallows together and also for the arms.  A Jelly Belly is used for the nose, and you can cut them in half to make eyes or buttons.  A strip of airhead makes a delicious scarf.  The final touch is putting on buttons with just a drop of black icing.  I can’t wait to make these myself.  Thanks for the idea Jim.

Keep it thimble!

  1. Good idea, but I have the stockings that hold candy canes that grandmother made and I thought that would be fun. I don’t think we are going to have much time to make anything on Monday. Let’s remember this for next year.
