How cute are these little guys? My kids are obsessed with hot chocolate lately so I thought it would be fun to dress up their mugs as an activity one day after school. These cute marshmallow stirrers are so easy to make and the kids can definitely help. They would also be cute to have pre-made for a holiday party as a stirrer or just a yummy little winter treat.
Rolo chocolate candy for hat (or any small round chocolate candy. i.e; junior mints etc.)
Orange fruit slices (or any orange gummy candy that can be cut to look like a carrot)
White icing/frosting (very small amount for glue to adhere the nose)
Black writing gel
First put 1 marshmallow onto the skewer, next add half a marshmallow for the head. If you squeeze the marshmallow a little you can get it to be slightly smaller than body. Last add the Rolo for the hat. Cut your orange candy slices into small triangles for the nose. You can adhere the nose with a tiny bit of white icing. Use the black writing gel to make eye and 3 buttons down the body. I found my gel was coming out too fast and making huge blobs so I put a blob of writing gel on a paper plate and then using the pointy side of another skewer I dipped it in the black gel and then used that to add my eyes and buttons.
If when all is said and done and you don't feel like making these from scratch you could always buy these adorable peep snowmen at a the grocery store which are really cute too!
