⛄️ How to Make Snowman Marshmallow Pops
Step One: Prepare the Chocolate
- Using a microwave safe, bowl heat the chocolate chips in 30 second increments stirring in between heatings until melted and smooth.
- Repeat the same process with the white chocolate chips, but at just 50% power. Once melted, stir in 2 to 3 drops of the orange food coloring.
Step Two: Assemble and Decorate the Snowmen
- Slide three of the marshmallows onto one of the ends of the stick or skewer.
- Using a butter knife, add a small amount of frosting to M&Ms to help them stick to the marshmallow and place them on the front of the center marshmallow to make the snowman’s buttons.
- Create the scarf by separating the strands of the Twizzler. Wrap a single strand around the marshmallows between the top and middle one and tie a knot.
- Dip a toothpick into the melted chocolate and use it to dot the top marshmallow and give your snowman eyes and a mouth.
- Dip a new toothpick into the melted orange chocolate and use it to draw a nose for your snowman.
- Give your snowman a hat by using the butter knife to put a small amount of frosting on the large side of the peanut butter cup and place it on the top marshmallow.
- Repeat the process to create the rest of the snowmen.
Suggestions and Alternatives
- If the chocolate chips begin to harden, put them back in the microwave for a few seconds.
- If the white chocolate begins to seize, add a few drops of coconut oil and stir until it smooths out.
- If you can’t find lollipop sticks or skewers, popsicle sticks will also work.
- Use some pretzel sticks to give your snowmen arms.
- If you don’t have peanut butter cups, you can use a chocolate-dipped marshmallow to make the hat. Just make sure you wait until the chocolate has completely dried.
- Use these as cake decorations – they’d make great toppers for a holiday-themed cake
Store them at room temperature in an airtight container and they should keep for up to 2 weeks.
Freezing is not recommended as it will alter the texture of the marshmallows. These will keep best when stored at room temperature.
