Marshmallow Snowman S'mores

Fun in the snow is a staple around here and hot cocoa and a gooey treat are a great way to warm up afterwards. Earlier this winter, with holiday and winter treats gracing blogs and magazine pages everywhere, I was reminded of this fun Marshmallow Snowman I first put together last year last year. 

I shared the how-to for these microwave Marshmallow Snowman S'mores over on The Shabby Creek Cottage last month. Make your own today. He’s guaranteed to leave you wanting s’more!

Surprise the kids with these adorable Snowman S'mores. What a fun snow day treat!
Keep the simple ingredients for these Marshmallow Snowman S'mores on hand for a special “snow day” activity or after school snack. 

How to Make Marshmallow Snowman S'mores

Supplies Needed for Microwave Snowman S'mores

  • Large Marshmallows
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Graham Crackers
  • Pretzel Sticks (Arms)
  • Candy Corn or Orange Candy Melts (Snowman Noses)
You’ll also need a microwave oven and microwave-safe plate.

Assembling Your Marshmallow Snowman S’mores

To make the standing snowman, start with a full-size graham cracker. Cut two marshmallows in half. Place three halves on the graham cracker sticky-side down. Microwave until the marshmallows puff. (Watch very carefully. In our 1100-watt microwave, it took about 12-13 seconds.) Add broken pretzel sticks for arms. Chocolate chips make up the eyes and buttons, and I used a sliver of orange candy melt for the nose. Set aside to cool, if you can resist the gooey goodness:)

To make the snowman face, place remaining marshmallow half, cut-side down on a graham cracker square. Microwave until the marshmallow puffs. I put these in slightly longer to get a nice round snowman face (maybe 14 seconds in our microwave). Add a piece of candy corn for the nose and a couple chocolate chips for the eyes.

Make these adorable Marshmallow Snowman S'mores for your next winter event.

Store Marshmallow Snowmen in a single layer in a covered container. I’ve had success making these s'mores a day ahead if serving a crowd.


Marshmallow Snowman Microwave S'mores Recipe

Make a tray of these Marshmallow Snowmen and some  Rudolph S’mores and grab a Frosty or Rudolph dvd for a fun Christmas Classics movie night with the kids! Or, plan a winter sledding or skating party and serve up a tray of Snowman S’mores alongside a toasty hot cocoa bar.
