Popcorn Snowmen




Supplies

  • 15 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 stick of butter or margarine
  • 2 - 10 oz. pkgs. marshmallows
  • pretzel sticks
  • raisins
  • candy corn
  • mini jawbreakers
  • gumdrops or red hots
  • fruit leather or fruit by the foot

    How To Make It

    1. Put popcorn in large mixing bowl and set aside.
    2. Melt butter in non-stick saucepan over medium to low heat. Add all the marshmallows, stirring continually with a wooden spoon until they're completely melted.
    3. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat evenly.
    4. As soon as the marshmallow is cool enough to touch, rub a little butter in your hands and make popcorn balls (about one cup of popcorn per ball).
    5. Build and decorate your snowmen on a sheet of waxed paper. For each one, stack three popcorn balls atop each other. Push pretzel stick arms into the sides 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.
    6. If your popcorn balls aren't sticky enough to hold the decorations, mix up a small batch of stiff white icing (add water, a few drops at a time, to 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar and stir until smooth) and use it to glue the candy in place.
    7. For snowmen's scarves, cut rectangles out of fruit leather and fringe the ends and wrap around neck.
