Here in Chicago we were pretty lucky and not get hit with the snow that out East did. That being said, I know many of you out east are snowed in today! If you can’t get outside to build a snowman, how about building one right in your kitchen? Here’s a great Build A Snowman Kit that you can do within the warmth of your own home. Plus, this is an awesome treat bag to send to school with your kids!
Ingredients (per snowman kit):
- 3 Marshmallows
- 1 Candy Corn
- 2 Mini Chocolate Chips
- 3 Chocolate Chips
- 2 Small Pretzel Sticks
- 1 Tablespoon White Frosting
Additional Materials Needed:
- Sandwich Bags
- Portion-size Snack Size Bags
Printable (best results if printed on white cardstock)
- For each snowman kit, place required amount of all ingredients except frosting and candy corn in a sandwich bag.
- To make candy corn look like a carrot: cut off the yellow and white sections. Roll orange candy between two fingers, and pinch end to form a tip. Place candy corn “carrot” in the bag with other ingredients.
- Spoon one tablespoon of white frosting into a snack size bag. Cut off the top of the bag and fold down twice and tape closed. Place small bag of frosting in each sandwich bag kit.
- Cut out kit labels and fold in half horizontally.
- Cut off the top of each sandwich bag kit. Place a printed kit label over the top of the bag and attach it by stapling the sides.
Directions to build snowman:
- Place a thin layer of white frosting on the tops (flat side) of two marshmallows. Using one frosted marshmallow as the base (frosted layer facing up), place the second frosted marshmallow on top (again frosted layer facing up). Complete the snowman body by placing the unfrosting marshmallow on top.
- Stick a pretzel stick into each side of the middle marshmallow, angled upwards.
- Place a thin layer of frosting onto each mini chocolate chip and place on the top marshmallow for eyes.
- Push the “carrot” nose into the center of the top marshmallow.
- Place a thin layer of frosting onto each regular sized chocolate chip and stick them down the center of the snowman as buttons.
