Make a few of these Floating Marshmallow Snowmen to add the cutest touch to your hot chocolate. These simple and cute marshmallows are a fun craft that the kids can help make.
Over the years, I used to collect snowmen that I would decorate our house with during the winter. I say used to because after moving three times in a year an a half, I purged a lot of items as we were packing.
Each time we pulled the Christmas boxes out to decorate the current house, I gave more and more away to Goodwill. Now I only have a few snowmen on a few shelves.
I did keep most of the snowmen ornaments for our Christmas tree though. Do you do themed trees in your house? We have one that is semi-themed. It is mostly snowmen. We also add the cute kids ornaments that they made in grade school to it, along with some turquoise ornaments and white silk poinsettias.
I used to do all kinds of wood crafts many years ago too. Each year I would create a fun new snowman to add to the growing collection. Over the years, I have kind of stopped doing those kind of things.
Although, I did have a slight crafty moment when I made these Rustic Wood Ornaments to add to our tree this year.
Now a days most of my crafting is done with food. Usually I find a way to incorporate those candy googly eyes to something each holiday.
This year though, I used chocolate to make some faces for some hot chocolate marshmallow toppers. An edible marshmallow snowman in a cup of Peppermint Mocha Hot Chocolate always gets smiles.
What you need to make Marshmallow Snowmen
- extra large marshmallows
- kitchen scissors

How to make Marshmallow Snowmen
Mix together the cornstarch and powdered sugar in a bowl.
Cut the marshmallow in half with a pair of kitchen scissors. Dip the sticky end in the powdered sugar mixture. Make sure to tap off all the excess powder.
Melt the chocolate melts in a microwave safe bowl for about 20-30 seconds. Stir until melted. Spoon into a plastic bag and cut a tiny corner off. Use it to make the eyes and mouth on the tops of the marshmallows.
Melt the white melts the same way. Stir in a little bit of orange food coloring. Spoon into another plastic bag and cut a tiny corner off. Make a carrot nose on each marshmallow.
Let the chocolate set before packaged the marshmallows in a tightly sealed bag.
