4 large marshmallows
Liquid red food coloring or black decorator icing and small candies
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
12 semisweet chocolate pieces, raisins or dried cranberries....or use your imagination!
4 red maraschino cherries with stems, drained, patted dry
4 red licorice twists, halved, or 8 tiny candy canes or pretzel sticks
***You may switch up the decorations: use a large gumdrop on top of the hat instead of the cherry, or use a miniature waffle cone dipped in chocolate and cover the tip (ONLY) in sprinkles as the hat instead of a marshmallow. Reese Peanut Butter cups would also work as a "hat"...the most important thing is to HAVE FUN WITH IT!!
1) Make the snowman heads by creating a face on each large marshmallow. Use a wooden toothpick dipped in food coloring or black icing and small candies (attach with a little icing).
2) Place one scoop of ice cream in each of four chilled dessert bowls. Arrange three chocolate pieces in a line down the center of each scoop to resemble buttons. Top each scoop with one of the marshmallow heads.
3) Place a cherry on top of each marshmallow to make hats. Stick two licorice twists into each scoop of ice cream for arms.
