Edible Snowmen

When we read Snowmen at Night, it starts by talking about how after you build a snowman one day, the next morning it looks droopy.  The book then goes on to talk about what snowmen do at night that causes them to droop.

For a fun go-along, we made edible droopy snowmen.  Baby B's godmother sent us directions for adorable melted snowmen, and we adapted them to be slipping a bit but not fully melted.

First, you need to melt either white chocolate chips or white candy bark.  You spread a little bit onto your plate to make a puddle.  Next, roll two doughnut holes in the bark and stack them on your puddle.

Finally, decorate your snowman.  We used an orange Mike & Ike for the nose, mini chocolate chips for the eyes and smile, part of a fruit roll-up for the scarf, two mini tootsie rolls for the hat, and pieces of a fruit leather rope for the arms.

Miss M made her snowman all by herself, and I think she did a fantastic job!

  1. When I saw your title and the pic, I thought it was 2 scoops of ice cream. If you use ice cream, you could watch it melt and get droopy. Either way, YUM.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it!
