I have been making marshmallow snowmen and I love them. They are so cute!
Has anyone made Santa's from marshmallows on a stick? Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this. I would love to give it a try.
no, and i tried for like 2 months to figure out how to do something for fall (not jackolanterns though) like a scarecrow or something and just never figured it out in my head so I never tried anything.
I would love to try to think of a whole slew of things you could do, the snowmen are so adorable, here are some I made last year.
How much do you charge for yours by the way? I'm currently charging $1.00/ea. but have yet to "sell" any....everyone LOVES them when I bring them and they're always the first things to go but it seems like nobody wants to acutally "pay" for them!!!
I wonder if you could do a simple "Santa" looking figure like this. Dip the 2 bottom marshmallows in red, then over dip the very bottom of the bottom one in black for boots, pipe a belt on the center, then dip the top one in flesh color and over dip the two ends (top and bottom) of it in white for hair and beard and put on a face once it's set.
How would you do that hat though??
Seems like an aweful lot of work! lol
Cute little snowmen!
if you could make a cross, you could have arms sticking out. i dont know if you could sticking through the body marshmallow or if it would rip. but an armless santa is still santa, i think!
you could just snip a big marshmallow to a slightly hat shape? or make your own, maybe easier to shape? infact, make your own sheets of marshmallow (i think thats how its done?) then take your santa cutter, and tada!
A pretzel stick thru one will make arms.
If you don't want to push it all the way thru then break it in 1/2 & attach w/a dot of chocolate.
So glad someone posted this....My daughters birthday is in January (she is turning 1) and we are having a "Winter ONEderland" party. I am planning on making these snowmen. KH what did you use for a hat and nose....So cute!
the hat was just half of a big marshmallow dipped in chocolate and then set on wax paper and allowed to kind of puddle on the wax paper (for the brim) and the nose was just orange gumdrops that I cut into triangles shaped a tad and then redipped in sugar so they weren't sticky (I left the side that stuck to the snowman cut and free of sugar because they're super sticky and I didn't have to use anything else to adhere them)
Thanks KHalstead...I can't wait to make these!
Thanks for the ideas. I think I might just have to spend a Saturday experimenting. If I come up with anything usable I will post it. Red gumdrop for a hat??
KHalstead: I charge $2.00cn each for these. I brought about 12 into work as samples for people with young kids and I got 2 orders for 25 each so I was happy with that. I was my first attempt and they look similar to yours.
I used orange fondant that I had on hand for the noses.
Grrrreat job! Those santas look wonderful...now you have to share how you made the hat and other stuff.lol
they look AWESOME, are thos gumdrops for the hats??????? soooooo cool!!!!! Yaaaaaayyyy you did it!!!
Yep, red gum drops for hats. Fondant belt and buckle. I tried to do the hat 'fur' with royal icing but it was setting smooth and I didn't like the look so I made it out of fondant so I could add some texture. The beard is royal but the moustache is fondant. They were great fun to make. I took these in to work and they generated quite a few orders. So I have a busy weekend ahead of me.
