January 28, 2024

Making marshmallow snowmen is a delightful and creative way to add a winter-y touch to hot chocolate. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to make marshmallow snowmen for hot chocolate topping:

Materials Needed:

  1. Large marshmallows
  2. Toothpicks or small pretzel sticks
  3. Edible markers or small pieces of colored fondant
  4. Miniature chocolate chips or small round candies (for eyes and buttons)
  5. Orange candy or fondant (for the carrot nose)
  6. Chocolate syrup or icing (for attaching features)
  7. Hot chocolate


1. Prepare Materials:

  • Gather all the materials and ensure that you have enough marshmallows for each snowman.

2. Assemble the Base:

  • Take three large marshmallows for each snowman. These will represent the body parts of the snowman.
  • Thread the marshmallows onto a toothpick or pretzel stick, ensuring they are stacked on top of each other.

3. Add Eyes and Buttons:

  • Use miniature chocolate chips or small round candies to create the eyes and buttons. Attach them to the marshmallow using a bit of chocolate syrup or icing.

4. Create the Carrot Nose:

  • Cut a small triangular piece from an orange candy or fondant to represent the snowman’s carrot nose.
  • Attach it to the top marshmallow with a small dab of chocolate syrup or icing.

5. Draw a Face:

  • Use edible markers or small pieces of colored fondant to draw a face on the top marshmallow. You can create a happy, smiling, or surprised expression.

6. Attach Arms:

  • If desired, you can attach small pretzel sticks or break toothpicks in half and insert them into the sides of the middle marshmallow to represent the snowman’s arms.

7. Place on Hot Chocolate:

  • Once your marshmallow snowmen are assembled, place them on top of a cup of hot chocolate. The heat from the hot chocolate will help secure them in place.

8. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Serve the hot chocolate with the adorable marshmallow snowmen to friends, family, or yourself.
  • Watch as the snowmen gradually melt into the hot chocolate, adding sweetness and charm to your drink.


  • Be creative with your snowman’s features and expressions.
  • If using toothpicks for arms, make sure they are inserted securely but also warn those enjoying the hot chocolate about them.
  • Experiment with different candies and colors to personalize your marshmallow snowmen.

This simple and fun activity is perfect for adding a festive touch to winter gatherings or cozy nights by the fireplace. —Vita Daily
