I was searching through the internet trying to find a fun food gift to give to the children in school. I didn’t just want to give them chocolate, I wanted to give them something that they could do by themselves.
I found this fun marshmallow snowman on google images. What a great idea to give to the children at Christmas, which would also be ideal for birthday party treat too.
You will need:
- Three marshmallows (I found Halal ones for the children that was Halal)
- Two iced eyes
- Three mini coloured chocolate Smarties for the buttons
- A Matchmaker stick for the twig arms broke into to two pieces
- An Iced carrot for the nose
- A strawberry lace for the scarf
- A couple of white chocolate buttons to use to glue it all together
Now all you have to do is construct it and build your snowman!
To present the snowman I bought some cellophane treat bags from Hobbycraft and made up a little label on word and then stuck it onto some card. Finally I stapled the label to the bag. As an added little gift I sellotaped a packet of fake snow on the back (I did emphasise to the children that the packet of snow wasn’t food and that they must show their adult first)
These fun little treats would be a cute little gift to find inside a stocking. I handed them out to the children in school and they loved them. Our elf on a shelf brought them to the boys and they immediately wanted to build their own snowman. It kept them occupied for a few minutes and they got to eat their little creation after

The snowman was not my idea, I found a picture online and adapted it to my own version.
