Marshmallow Snowmen


Marshmallow Snowmen

  • large marshmallows
  • small drink stirrers/straws or toothpicks
  • icing
  • small candy pieces

Icing Recipe


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 (16 oz.) box of confectioners sugar


  • In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Beat several minutes with an electric mixer until smooth. The icing should be thick. Use food coloring to achieve the desired color effects.
  • The icing will harden quickly. Store in a tightly sealed container if you are not using it right away. While you work with the icing, keep a damp cloth over the unused portion.


  • Trim the toothpick or drink stirrer to the exact height of two marshmallows stacked one on the other.
  • Insert the trimmed toothpick or drink stirrer into the two marshmallows.
  • Use icing to adhere candy pieces to marshmallow to create fun faces, scarves, hats and buttons.

If you would like, place a snowman in the front yard of your gingerbread house!
