Crystal’s Marshmallow Snowmen™
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Big marshmallows, tiny marshmallows, and some gumdrops for the hats.
A red licorice lace or similar
Icing sugar and water to make your “glue.”
Squeezy tubes of colored icing
A grown-up to help you with the tricky stuff
Add 3 heaping tablespoons of icing sugar into a bowl, then mix in 2 teaspoons of water and stir. This should give your glue a nice, sticky consistency.
Decorate your snowman’s face with squeezy icing pens or icing sugar mixed with food coloring. A toothpick works well as a pen. I like turning the marshmallow on its side to use the flat part as the face.
Take one large marshmallow and apply a blob of icing glue to the top.
Next take your snowman’s face and place it on top. Set aside for a few minutes to dry.
Add the arms in the same way. The arms will be the small marshmallows. Hold in place for a few seconds until they are set.
Next add a nice red scarf, using the licorice lace. Use your icing glue to secure the scarf at the back of your snowman’s neck and on his front.
Now add a gumdrop on top for your snowman’s hat, using a dab of your icing glue to secure.
