Snowman Sundae

     Whether your kids are home due to a Snow Day, or you're entertaining the grandkids, here's a quick little treat they will enjoy making.....and eating!

Snowman Sundae

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. 

Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings
