Popcorn Snowmen
What's your Take?

It's tons of fun and a perfect indoor activity that kids can munch on once they're done!

What you'll need

  • 15 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 stick of butter or margarine
  • Two 10 oz. packages marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Raisins
  • Candy corn
  • Mini jawbreakers
  • Gumdrops or red hots
  • Fruit leather

How to make it

  1. Put the popcorn in your largest mixing bowl and set aside. Melt the butter or margarine in a nonstick saucepan over medium-low heat. Add all the marshmallows to the pan, stirring continually with a wooden spoon until they're completely melted. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat evenly. As soon as the marshmallow is cool enough to touch, rub a little butter or margarine in your hands and make popcorn balls (about 1 cup of popcorn per ball).

  2. Build and decorate your snowmen on sheets of waxed paper. For each one, stack three popcorn balls atop each other. Push pretzel-stick arms into the sides of the middle popcorn ball. Add raisins for eyes and a candy corn for a nose. Arrange a row of mini jawbreakers into a broad grin. For buttons on the snowman's chest, use gumdrops or red hots.

  3. If your popcorn balls aren't sticky enough to hold the decorations, mix up a small batch of stiff white icing by adding water, a few drops at a time, to 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar and stirring until smooth. Use this to glue the candy in place. For snowmen's scarves, cut rectangles out of fruit leather and fringe the ends. Makes 5 snowmen.
