Edible Snowmen

Posted by Katja on January 6, 2011

Spending an entire day outdoors on  the slopes makes Snowkids--and Snowmamas and Snowpapas-- hungry.

Sometimes, my kids are so tired they don’t even want to eat and then they get cranky. That's why we try to keep enough snacks ready.  Here are some of my favorite fun snacks. A bonus: they look like snowmen. Your kids will love making them with you and suddenly, you are the coolest Snowmama at the resort.

Forget about healthy, these are just for fun!  You need toothpicks, large marshmallows and black licorice. Assemble snowmen by inserting toothpicks into the marshmallows, using licorice to make eyes and mouths.  This is also a fun activity  to keep the kids occupied while you cook dinner. Serve with hot cocoa - ripping these apart and dropping into hot cocoa is equally fun.

Simply add black licorice eyes and mouth to a bowl of yogurt-overed raisins and you'll immediately get a smile from your tired kids.

Cheese. whole wheat crackers,  hummus and fruit are a  healthy,  year round favorite in our  house. . We turned them into snowmen by using round baby swiss cheese, olive “eyes” in the hummus and a carrot for the nose.

You need three crackers per snowman, and additional crackers  for their  hats. (You can also make hats out of fruit or veggies, like bell peppers). Spread cream cheese on the crackers,  cut olives as buttons and a carrot for nose. Pretzel sticks make great arms.
