Snowman Marshmallow

In a attempt to do a somewhat mess-free kitchen activity with my toddler we made snowman marshmallows. Super easy and you can make them with whatever you have on hand, get creative. I love making things where I don't have to run to the store to buy the ingredients/materials to create them. They do not have to be perfect as you can see with our "snowman" in the picture (he took a tumble before I could snap a picture). The hardest part in making these is keeping your child from eating the snowman before it is created!


  • 1 bag large marshmallows
  • A little cake icing
  • 2 ounces melted chocolate
  • Assorted small candies of your choice- I used Twizlers for the scarf, pretzels for the arms & Reese's Cup for his hat


1. “Glue” two marshmallows together by placing a small blob of icing on top of one of the marshmallows, and placing another marshmallow on top of the icing.
2. Repeat this procedure with a third marshmallow, so that you end up with three stacked marshmallows, stuck together with icing. This is your snowman body.
3. Give the snowman arms by sticking two pretzels in the sides of the middle marshmallow. Chow mein noodles would also work for this purpose.
4. Draw on face & buttons with melted chocolate. You could also use orange tic tacs for the nose & buttons.

5. Finish decorating the face and body with whatever candy or decorations you have. Try adding sprinkles, red hots, or M&Ms.  Hair can be created using shredded wheat cereal, or you can make a hat using wafer candies or Reese's Cup. Let your creativity run wild!
