Now that the holidays are upon us once more, many of you are baking, baking, baking and decorating. Whether your creating holiday cupcakes, a Christmas cake or Hanukkah dessert, most of us are busy in the kitchen.
Here is a simple, but cute snowman dessert for your holiday or Christmas party that takes very little time to create.
- Marshmallows (marshmellow)
- Tootsie Rolls
- Fruit Roll (choice of colors)
- Round Sugar Cookies
- Food dye marker
Frost your round sugar cookie with white icing. Take one marshmallow and place it on the center of the cookie on the icing. Put a small dab of icing and place it on top of the marshmallow. Now, place a second marshmallow on top of the first. Once the icing dries, both marshmallows should stay firmly in place.
To make the snowman treat hat, unwrap the tootsie roll and roll it around in the palms of your hands. As it warms up, it will become pliable, like playdough. Roll out a tootsie roll so that it is flat and round. Take a second tootsie roll and cut it in half. Place the cut piece on tip of the round piece. The two tootsie roll pieces will stick together, so no icing is needed between the two. Place a dab of icing on top of the snowman’s head and place the hat on top. You’re almost done with your holiday snowman dessert.
Now, cut a small piece of your fruit roll and wrap it around the middle of the snowman for a scarf. Using your food coloring marker, draw a face and you’re done. Sprinkle a little white sugar sparkles (white sprinkles) around the snowman and on the tootsie roll hat. This snowman treat makes a great centerpiece for parties. And, of course, kids will love you for it.
