Super cute snowman snacks
The holidays are here, and it’s time to celebrate! Are you having guests over this year? Looking for a fun and sweet holiday treat for the kids to craft? We love to get creative in the kitchen, so I gladly accepted a challenge from Hostess® Cakes to create something holiday-themed, fun, and tasty with their snacks! Hostess has so many classic and delicious snacks that I grew up with, Twinkies®, Ding Dongs®, Ho Hos®, Zingers®, Sno balls®, you name it, I ate it!
Fun winter treats for kids
Would you look at what Hostess sent me? Having these in the house could be bad, very bad. With so many great choices, I decided to go with Hostess® Sno balls® and make some snowmen! I stopped by Target to grab a few more ingredients and got to work. These holiday treats are perfect to use as decoration, place on the dessert table at your holiday functions, or even just as a fun, edible holiday craft to make at home. Here’s how to make DIY cute snowman treats out of Sno balls, the kids would love to do this with you!
DIY Cute Snowman Treats On A Stick
To get started making these edible snowmen treats, you will need the following ingredients. Here’s how to make a snowman out of food.
You will need:
- 1 box Hostess® Sno balls®, white
- 1 bag mini chocolate chips
- 1 box Mike and Ike candies, I used the orange pieces
- 1 bag M&M’s
- 1 package thin licorice laces
- 1 tube white frosting
- 1 wooden skewer stick or toothpick
- 6 decorative paper straws
Step 1: Make the face of the snowman
Ok, so you’ve gotta unwrap your Hostess® Sno balls® and get them ready. With your skewer stick, poke a small hole into the middle of the cake where you want to put the carrot nose (Mike & Ike orange candy). Shove the Mike and Ike candy in there, and do the same process for the eyes and mouth with the mini chocolate chips. I pushed mine down and they sat in there just fine. If yours are not sticking, put a little frosting down in each hole first.
Step 2: Add the earmuffs to the snowman craft
It’s time to glue on the earmuffs, measure out your licorice to the appropriate size and glaze a thin strip of icing across the top of the cake. Place a licorice lace on the frosting glue, then turn to each side and dab frosting on each end to place an M&M.
Step 3: Add the straw to the sno-ball
Insert your straw in the bottom of the cake as far as you can, without poking out of the top. Allow the frosting to set for about an hour and you’re all set! If you don’t make any mistakes and manage to not eat the ingredients, you should be able to make 6 snowmen.
We love these Christmas snowman snacks!
