Marshmallow Snowmen

Turn a regular cup of hot chocolate into an even sweeter winter treat with these delicious and adorable marshmallow snowmen. Perfect for a holiday party or caroling in the neighborhood, they’ll look cute hanging on your straw until they slowly melt into the hot cocoa.


Supplies:

  1. Homemade marshmallows (directions below)
  2. Holiday straws
  3. Snowman cookie cutter
  4. Black decorating gel or icing


Directions:

  1. Evenly spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan and set aside.
  2. In a bowl of a stand mixer combine gelatin and water (1), fit with whip attachment and set aside.
  3. In a saucepan combine sugar and water (2) and cover with a lid. Boil for 3 minutes and remove lid. Attach a thermometer on side of pan and boil until syrup reaches 240°F. Do not stir syrup as this may cause it to crystallize.
  4. Remove from heat, engage mixer in medium speed and while whipping pour hot syrup in a slow and steady stream onto whipping gelatin. Once all combined engage mixer in high speed. Add salt.
  5. Whip until mixture feels lukewarm and looks like marshmallow fluff, about 8-12 minutes. Stop mixer and scrape marshmallow into prepared pan. Spread evenly. Dust with a partial amount of powdered sugar.
  6. Allow to cool, preferably overnight while covered with plastic food wrap.
  7. Next day remove from pan and use a snowman cookie cutter to cut into shape, toss generously into powdered sugar to make them less sticky.
  8. Slide the snowman onto the straw starting at the snowman’s head (so the bottom of your straw that will be in your cocoa mug will have the marshmallow residue).
  9. Fill in your snowman’s hat and draw in coal eyes and buttons with black decorating gel.
