Snow People

Snow People

Have "snow" much fun! Create and offer edible snow people in a jar of sugar cubes to look like snow.



  1. Cover cookie sheet with foil or waxed paper.
  2. Melt candy coating as directed on package.
  3. Thread 2 marshmallows on each pretzel rod so marshmallows are at one end of pretzel.
  4. For hat brim, press gumdrop to flatten and attach to top of pretzel, using melted coating; press and hold brim about 5 seconds.
  5. For top of hat, attach another gumdrop, flat side down, on center of brim, using melted coating; press and hold about 5 seconds.
  6. Place pretzel in empty beverage glass to hold upright; let stand about 20 minutes or until set.
  7. For eyes, attach chocolate chips to marshmallow, using melted coating.
  8. Repeat with remaining gumdrops, pretzels, marshmallows and chocolate chips.
  9. Cut fruit snack rolls into strips, about 6 inches long and 1/4 inch wide; place on snow people for scarves.

Yield: 12 candies

Special Touch: For an individual gift, package one snowman in a plastic bag filled with miniature marshmallows to resemble snow. Tie with fanciful ribbons.
