Adorable Edible Snowmen

As I’m sitting here enjoying a quiet day in front of the computer and tv (while waiting for our new washer and dryer to arrive), I found these adorable edible snowmen from Martha Stewart.

They seem fairly easy to make. Here are the directions directly from the website. Click on the picture above to open the Martha Stewart website.

“These merry snowmen get their roly-poly forms, red scarves, and carrot noses from rolled fondant, a thick, pliable sugar mixture often used to give wedding cakes a smooth finish (you’ll find it at baking-supply stores). Chocolate sprinkles stand in for coal eyes and buttons; licorice drops make the hats.

Step 1 On a cornstarch-dusted surface, roll balls of white fondant to form the three parts of a snowman.

Step 2 Glue balls with royal icing if needed. Using gel-paste food coloring, tint a tiny bit of fondant orange; shape into carrot noses. Tint a small amount red for scarves.

Step 3 Make toothpick holes for noses, eyes, and buttons; push in carrots and sprinkles. Add scarves, and top with licorice hats. Display on a platter that has been “snowed” on with sanding sugar, or set in front of a gingerbread house.”

I may have to make these with my kindergartners when we have our snow unit!
