Snowman Pops

I Love Christmas!!!!
and I love looking at other creative people's blogs and finding
cute, simple Christmas ideas tomake and/or to eat.

As I was browsing some sites the other day I came across
this cute idea  from to make
"Snowmen Pops" using marshmallows, melted white chocolate
and mini M&Ms. It also called for white lollipop sticks but our
local Walmart didn't have them so I iimprovised with some flat
sticks from the craft section.

The girls and I got up early on Saturday morning and started
making them. We used 2 bags of marshmallows and made 25
snowmen pops. We would have had 26 pops if we hadn't had to
taste the marshmallows to make sure they were good! LOL!

Gabrielle and Cassidy are sticking the marshmallows on the sticks.

A bowlful of white candy ready to be melted...

Dip the snowman marshmallows into the melted candy. Make sure
to completely cover the marshmallows so they don't get hard and
icky. I used a spoon to help make sure everything was covered.
Place the chocolate covered snowman on wax paper to harden.

Mini M&Ms...we could only find them in Christmas colors.

As soon as the snowmen were placed on the wax paper we placed
2 M&Ms for the eyes, 1 for the nose and then 1 on each of the
remaining marshmallow.

Ta Da!!!!
The finished product! Isn't he adorable?

We let them harden completely and then we placed them in
individual clear bags tied closed with a twist tie. Dummy me
forgot to take a picture of that!

So how did they taste? Delicious!!!!

Love the idea, Nancy! I saw this on another blog too, but they had top-hats made of oreo cookies. I may have to try this with the boys, we have some marshmallows already in the pantry. Thanks!
