These snowman seem complicated, but it really just involves a little time. So put on a good movie, or turn on Netflix- will keep you going.
All you need is:
Orange tic tacs
Licorice- red pull a parts
Small, medium and large cake bites
I used the New York Cheesecake cake bite recipe from 101 Gourmet Cake Bites– it’s a great recipe and tastes good with the coconut. One recipe made 8 snowman.
My 5 year old took these pictures of me making the cake bites…. even though the pictures are blurry- you get the point, right? Dip the cake bites in white candy coating, then….
Cover with the shredded coconut. Set aside to dry. Once the chocolate cures, use the warm chocolate as your glue, then assemble.
Once the body is done, then move on to the arms (pretzel), nose (tic tacs), mini M&M’s for the eyes and buttons, and the hat (Oreos).
I purchased some small ramekins from Taipan for 95 cents- so I could give them away. Tossed some extra coconut on the bottom for snow.
He’s so cute! Almost too cute to eat… almost.
These snowman were used for place settings at a Christmas party… the arm got broken, my husband set the butter dish down a little too closely and it snapped.
Wouldn’t this be a perfect gift for Christmas? I know I would love getting it.
