Merry marshmallow snowman treats make a sweet snack or add whimsy to a gift of hot chocolate mix.
Marshmallow Snowman Treats
- 18 large marshmallows
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup coarse sugar
- 6 lollipop sticks
- 12 miniature marshmallows
- Colored sugar of your choice
- 2 Fruit Roll-Ups
- 2 oz. white candy coating, melted
- Pearl dragées
- Assorted paste food coloring
- Brush large marshmallows with corn syrup; roll in coarse sugar. On each lollipop stick, thread three large marshmallows.
- Flatten miniature marshmallows slightly. Brush with corn syrup; roll in colored sugar. Cut six thin strips, about 2 in. long, from a Fruit Roll-Up. For each earmuff, attach two sugarcoated miniature marshmallows and a Roll-Up strip using candy coating. Hold or prop up until set.
- For buttons, attach dragées with candy coating. Using candy coating tinted with food coloring, draw faces. Cut remaining Fruit Roll-Up into strips for scarves; add a scarf to each snowman. Yield: 6 snowmen.
EDITOR’S NOTE: When packaging for a gift, pair these wintry treats with Heavenly Hot Chocolate Mix. Wrap the cocoa mix and snowman in separate cellophane bags to keep them both fresh and pretty.
