Snowman Candy Cane Stirrers.
Hi there, huge hot chocolate fan here! I am all about that creamy chocolatey deliciousness. Warms you up and there's so many things you can add to it! A little schnapps, am i right?! Well one of my favorite things to add, aside from the alcohol, is peppermint. I can't get enough of the stuff during the holiday season.
Marshmallows are also an obvious choice when we talk toppings. Something about them just makes it better. I like when they are almost all the way melted. So why not add the peppermint and marshmallows together? Let's get wild and add some candy to the mix. Helps with the cuteness level too for these snowman candy cane stirrers.
During the holidays we are always looking for fun and easy projects to do with Violet while she's on Christmas break. This project was perfect for little helping hands and allowed for sweet treats as a reward. If there is one thing we have in common, it's our sweet teeth. Both our mouths are full of em!
We had fun watching our snowmen melt into the hot cocoa and had even more fun drinking them. Grab your candy canes and marshmallows, get the hot cocoa going and get ready to make a snowman. No frost bite included!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Candy canes
- Large marshmallows
- M&M's or candy coated chocolate in brown
- Reese bells
- Rainbow belts
- Candy corn
HOW TO DO IT:
1. Unwrap your candy cane and flip upside down. Poke 3 marshmallows through the candy cane making the shape of a snowman.
2. Using your frosting as glue, put some on the front sides of your brown candy coated chocolates covering the logo and place onto marshmallows as eyes and buttons.
3. Cut your candy corn in half and attach under eyes with frosting.
4. Cut rainbow belt candy so it is only the red and orange being used. Put icing on one side and glue around the top and second marshmallow. This is the scarf.
5. Frost bottom of a Reeses bell and stick to the top of the snowman for his hat.
6. Stick in your hot cocoa and stir!
