Ingredients

  • 200g white chocolate
  • 10 large white marshmallows (ensure vegetarian, if needed)
  • 20 mini pretzel sticks
  • handful of colourful sugar-coated chocolates
  • black and orange edible icing pens

Method

  • STEP 1

    Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water, or in 20-second bursts in the microwave. Line two baking trays with baking parchment and spoon over puddles of the melted chocolate, about 6cm in diameter. Stick a marshmallow ‘head’ into the middle of each, then two pretzel ‘arms’ alongside the head. Decorate with two colourful chocolate ‘buttons’, then leave to set for at least 2-3 hrs or overnight.

  • STEP 2

    Draw black eyes and mouths, and an orange carrot nose onto the marshmallow heads using the icing pens. Leave to set for 30 mins. You can then wrap the snowman buttons in bags to give as gifts. Will keep in an airtight bag or container in a cool, dry place for up to five days.
