Marshmallow Snowmen

Four marshmallow snowmen on skewers, each decorated with a painted face and scarf, pretzel arms, and a candy for a hat.

Who said you can’t play with your food before cooking and eating it? These marshmallow snowmen add a little fun before cooking them on the campfire.

Edible ink pens are becoming more common now and can be bought at many food stores in the baking section. If yours doesn’t have them any decorating store and most craft stores with a cake section also sell them.

Although it works all year round, snowmen are a popular theme during the Christmas holiday season whether you live in an area that gets snow or trying to bring a snowman to a hot southern Christmas.
