I saw this idea here, and I absolutely LOVED it! I might use some orange candy melts next time for the carrot nose for some extra depth. The kids and I had tons of fun putting these together.
You’ll need . . .
1 box of graham crackers
2 Giant Hershey Bars
1 bag of large marshmallows
1 box of Fruit by the Foot
1 package of white candy coating, or white chocolate
*Orange-colored candy melts – if you want don’t want to use the marker
So here is how we did it. . .
Place halved graham crackers on a parchment-lined baking sheet and then set two squares of chocolate on top (I used a Giant Hershey Bar).
Then have your kids place a large marshmallow on top of the chocolate. Place the cookie sheet in the oven at 350 degrees (I preheated my oven, then turned it off when I put the s’mores in) for about 10-15 minutes, or until the marshmallows are slightly puffed and lightly browned.
*I wanted to heat them in the oven so that all the components would adhere to one another. Plus, the melted marshmallow really makes the snowman head look, well . .um . .melted.
Here they are out of the oven, cooled, and topped with melted white chocolate. And when I say “topped,” I don’t mean it literally – I just basically spooned the white chocolate around the base of the marshmallow.
Then I just “painted” on the face with my edible markers and added some blush with my dry paintbrush (I use it for food only) and some powdered food coloring. Then I used fruit by the foot as the “scarf.” Super fun, super easy, and dare I say. . .super cute!
