Snowman Marshmallow Craft
Here are 5 quick tips to help make this snowman craft fun for all
- When getting Christmas crafts for kids together, make sure you have all your items ahead of time. This helps to save time and fend off frustration and makes the whole project much more fun.
- Kids love marshmallows and to make something that is not only cute, but edible will make them excited to give this wonderful treat to someone special.
- Have cookies and candy unwrapped and set aside for quick assembly.
- Pre-melt chocolate wafers and have ready to go in a pastry bag or simply use a toothpick dipped in melted colors and paint on like a brush.
- Make sure to let the marshmallow snowman heads sit upside down on your tray long enough for the candy “glue” to set, otherwise, hats will fall off!
How Do You Make Snowman on a Stick?
First, prep a large baking sheet with wax or parchment paper so your snowman marshmallow heads have a place to dry and set.
Insert (1) large marshmallow onto the end of each lollipop stick.
And just a reminder, full recipe, and instructions are below to print and enjoy!
Melt Wilton chocolate candy melts in a microwave-safe dish until melted.
Add to your piping bag or grab your toothpick to dip in the melted chocolate.
Melt orange melts too so you can make your snowman noses.
Let snowman's face set before adding on the candy & cookie hats.
Squeeze a small amount of chocolate to the bottom of a Grasshopper cookie and place it on the snowman. I stood them up, upside down until the chocolate had set.
If you don't have the Grasshopper cookie, you can try our Homemade Thin Mint Cookies recipe!
Repeat with all your marshmallow snowmen.
Last but not least, I did the same process when adding the mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and let them stand upside down to set.
How do you make an edible snowman out of marshmallows?
This super easy snowman craft is for the snowman head and face only.
If you wanted to make a full marshmallow snowman, you can use Jumbo marshmallow for the base, large for the middle, and regular for the head.
I would still hold together with a lollipop stick or maybe a long wooden skewer.
Decorate the same way, and try adding a licorice scarf! How cute would that be?!
