So a month an a half ago, I saw this really cute project in a mag: Make melting snowmen snacks to celebrate Spring! Good idea! And super easy. Of course this was a while ago, and I threw away the magazine (I think it was in Family Fun, but I checked their site and can't find the article anywhere). So today we improvised!
I cut a marshmellow in half and dipped it in white chocolate to coat the bottom, then placed it on wax paper. Then the kids spooned more white chocolate on top of it to cover the whole thing (and then some) like a puddle. Pretzel sticks for arms, mini chocolate chips for eyes, Runts bananas cut in half for carrot noses, and M&M minis for the buttons, plus, my fav, if you take a melting chocolate chip (the big flat kind) and glue (with more chocolate) an upside-down Rolo to it: perfect top hat! So the kids decorated a bunch and took them to some of their friends. Really fun! And perfect for this lovely Spring day when it looks so nice outside and is actually completely fridged!
And yes, I should have a pic to post, but I forgot to take one. The kids ate their melted snowmen up too fast!
