All this snowy, January weather has us thinking snowmen, and trying to embrace the season, rather than just waiting for it to pass. You know we love nothing more than a themed party around here, so we turned a simple dinner with friends on the weekend into a snowman party. I wanted to make a simple, fun snowman dessert and came up with this tasty idea that I thought you and any kids in your life might enjoy.
I started out with some regular size jelly donuts, and some of the timbit version too. I also picked up some mini powdered donuts at the grocery store. I stacked them together to make the snowman’s body. You could use a toothpick to make it even more secure, but the small middle donut with the hole in the middle worked really well to balance the timbit head. Then, I just embellished the snowman. I used chocolate chips for eyes, and made a nose out of an orange Mike and Ike. The scarf is a piece of fruit by the foot, and the arms are made from pretzels. The hat is one mini peanut butter cup, and a peppermint pattie, held together and on the snowman’s head with a little icing “glue”. I rested my snowmen on a little coconut “snow”.
Hope you enjoy this really simple and really fun idea. With donut snowmen, life really is a party!
