Ingredients:

  • 3 large white marshmallows
  • icing pens, in black and orange
  • 1 giant chocolate button
  • 1 chocolate – a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup or other domed chocolate is perfect
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp Horlicks powder
  • handful mini white marshmallows
  • 1 cookie (small enough to fit in a jam jar)
  • 3 strawberries laces
  • 1 cocktail stick
  • 1 large jam jar
  • Ribbon and gift tag

Method

  • First make the marshmallow snowman. Skewer the marshmallows together with a cocktail stick – cut off any of the stick that protrudes from the top. Use a little of the icing pen to stick a chocolate button and peanut butter cup to the top of each marshmallow stack, then draw on a face and 3 dots for buttons. Plait 3 strawberry laces and tie around the neck for a scarf. Stick the snowman to a cookie with a little more icing, then set aside to dry for a few minutes.
  • Mix the cocoa and Horlicks together in the bottom of your jar. Put the snowman on top, then scatter around the mini marshmallows. Screw n the lid, tie with a ribbon and a gift tag with the following instructions: Warm 300ml milk in a pan. Remove the snowman from the jar and add the milk. Stir until smooth and chocolatey, then enjoy, with your marshmallow snowman for dunking.
