Rice Krispie Snowman

1 Dec

I wish it snowed and I had a white winter! There are so many things I enjoy doing in the snow. I love to go sledding, have snowball fight and I attempt to snowboard haha. I can get down the hill though!

I wish I could build a snowman though. I wish I could go out the door and roll up snow balls and put a hat and scarf on it, just like frosty.

Snowman and snow make the winter season and I wish I had that. I did find an alternative for it though by making these delicious snowman treats.

They are so cute and such an enjoyable sweet treat.

I love rice krispies, so I think you can never go wrong when making something out of them. Just follow the recipe below!

Ingredients:

  • 450g box of rice krispies (rice bubbles)
  • 1 bag of white marshmallows
  • 2 tbl butter
  • white melting chocolate
  • candy – soft black licorice, milk/dark chocolate buttons, red sour strap, mini chocolate chips, raspberries (or other)

Instructions:

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large pot till melted.
Add one bag of marshmallows and stir over a med heat until  melted.
Add 3/4 of a 450g box of cereal.
Once all the cereal is coated, pull off the heat and spread across a sheet of baking paper to cool down.

**You may need to add a bit more cereal depending on how wet your mix is. You want all the cereal to be coated but not too sticky that it won’t hold shape. As it cools down, it will become easier to work with. Makes approximately 25.

Lightly grease your hands and roll cereal mix into two different sized balls. Press the mixture firmly in your hands to hold the shape. Store on baking paper until you are ready to assemble your snowman.

Scarfs ~ Cut strips of sour straps (or similar) into thirds to make the scarf. Clip the ends of the scarfs to create a fringe.

Top hats ~ Using melted white chocolate, glue a piece of soft black licorice onto top of a milk chocolate button. When warmed in your hand it is quite easy to roll. Put in the fridge to set.

Assembly ~ Use the melted white chocolate to assemble your snowman. Sandwich a little scarf between two of the rice krispie balls and refrigerate. Once set, add chocolate chip eyes and buttons and a little carrot nose. I found rolling a small piece of a raspberry jube jube works well for the nose. Finally, top with the hat and refrigerate again before serving.

Once they are set, slice a little off the bottom so your snowman can sit up nicely.

It is time consuming, but each step is simple though and the assembly is fun. Each snowman takes on a little personality of their own. The end result is so cute!
