Marshmallow Snowpeople

December 3, 2009


With the holidays approaching fast, I thought I’d repost this fun project.  Kids love it.   (Just be prepared for the sugar insanity that will follow!) 

You will need big (and or small) marshmallows, Popsicle sticks (to use as frosting knives), oreos, frosting, small pretzel sticks (optional) and edible gel marker pens (also optional).  Remember, you can easily make frosting with powdered sugar and milk (butter and vanilla are a delicious addition.)  Stiffer frosting works better since the frosting is the “glue” for the project.   Canned frosting works just fine too.

Using the oreo as a base, simply have your children add frosting to the oreo.  Then, they can build a snowman, adding one marshmallow at a time, gluing the sections together with frosting.  The pretzels can be stuck in as arms.  It works well to have your children draw the faces on their snowmen before gluing the heads on.  You can  find the frosting gel pens at many grocery stores!

Have fun!
