These fun, easy little marshmallow snowmen, with accessible ingredients, make perfect Christmas treats and gifts!

Step 1: Ingredients


(makes 1 snowman) x however many you want to make

3 medium marshmallows

1 hershey's kiss

½ cup melted chocolate chips

1 orange skittle or other hard orange candy

1 thin wooden skewer

Step 2: Glue Marshmallows Together With Chocolate

Melt the 1/3 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for about two minutes on low setting, taking out every thirty seconds to stir.

Prepare a plate with wax/parchment paper, and set the three marshmallows on it.

Glue each marshmallow to the other with a dab of chocolate in the middle. Set to cool on plate, best in fridge.

Step 3: Skewer and 'Paint'

Skewer the three marshmallows with the skewer (you can snap/cut it in half if it is too long).

Lay the resulting skewered snowman on plate and use a toothpick to dab on the eyes, mouth and buttons.

Step 4: Final Additions

Add the piece of orange candy to the face as a nose by pressing it firmly into the marshmallow.

smear some of the melted chocolate onto the bottom of the Hershey's kiss and place it on top as a final touch.

Step 5: Done!

Again, these make perfect Christmas gifts, and fun treats for kids. Be sure not to put in humidity. You can put these snowmen carefully in little gift bags, too.
