I want to make "melted snowmen' for my daughter's Frozen birthday party. The pics I have found are of a small cup of vanilla yogurt, with chocolate chip buttons, a candy corn nose, two piped chocolte arms, and two royal icing eyes. I thought it was cute and a healthy thing, though rather labor intensive. I can make the royal icing eyes, but I'm worried they will just immediately dissolve when sitting on top of the yogurt.

Has any one ever tried something like this? Am I heading into a super time consuming mess? Thanks for any input!

Could you post a link to a picture of what you are describing?

So this is along the lines of what I was thinking. It's likea little yogurt cup with snowman pieces sitting at the top to look like a melted snowman. I think candy corn will be fine, but I am worried that when I drop little royal icing eyes on top, they will just melt and be scary looking.

Royal icing eyes, fully dried, won't dissolve quickly.  Eventually, but not quickly.

I might add them on the day of the party.  To be safe, don't do something like adding them the night before and covering the whole thing to hold the humidity in!

Also, little eyes like that are commercially available if you want to save yourself some time!

If you use candy melts there won't be a melting issue.

Why not use just large'd achieve the same result with very little effort and mess.

Those look like the eyes that Wilton sells.

Well marshmallows don't really look like eyes, and regardless of weather I make or buy the eyes they would be facing the same problem. I think I'll make the eyes ahead of time so they dry out well. Then I'll drop them in the yogurt cups as they are served. Thanks for the feedback!

I didn't explain myself properly. I meant use a large marshmallow for the body, then add candy for eyes, arms etc.

jchuck, I think the point here is that you're feeding kids yogurt, not sugar.

Ah...I see. A healthier option. Ok, I get it now.

I thought I could add an update incase anyone was interested in how it turned out. I bought the pre-made Wilton candy eyes. They held up about 4 hours before getting watery, and I'd say they lasted about 6 hours before turning to complete liquid. I made the yogurt cups at the last minute, and I think it worked out very well.
