DIY : Easy Marshmallow Snowmen!
Source : Happy Thought Blog
Here is a sweet and funny way to create your own marshmallow snowmen!
These yummy candies come in perfect timing with this holiday season! Here are the instructions:
What you will need:
- Big marshmallows, tiny marshmallows and some gum drops for the hats.
- A red liqourice lace or similar (try your local pick ‘n’ mix)
- Confectioners sugar and water to make your ‘glue’. Add 3 heaped tablespoons of confectioners sugar into a bowl, then mix in 2 teaspoons of water and stir. This should give your glue a nice sticky consistency.
- Squeezy tubes of coloured icing (or you can use confectioners sugar mixed with food colouring)
Step 1: Start by decorating your snowman’s face using the squeezy icing pens. If you don’t have those, you can use a toothpick and sugar mixed with food colouring.
Step 2: Now take one large marshmallow and apply a blob of confectioners sugar glue as shown on the picture.
Step 3: Take your snowman’s face and place it on the top of the previous one. Let it dry for few minutes.
Step 4: Now, it’s time to add the arms using the same technique. Make sure to hold it in place for few seconds until they are set.
Step 5: Customize your snowman! Here, you can see that he has a cute red scarf. You can choose the color you want and personalize your candy. Make sure to pout a small amount of confectioners sugar glue so that the back of the snowman sets.
Step 6: To finish, add a gumdrop on the top of the second marshmallow. That will be the hat. Secure it by putting a small amount of confectioners sugar glue.
