The best part about being a parent is sharing all the things you loved about your own childhood with your children. I love all things Christmas, and one of my favorite holiday traditions is watching all the great television specials: from the Thanksgiving Day Parade to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and of course, Frosty the Snowman. We all gather on the couch as a family, just like I did as a kid, to watch. And what better way to add to the fun than to create fun, holiday treats to go with the holiday special of the night!
Frosty the Snowman Snack Packs
Super Snack Pack Vanilla pudding cups are the perfect base for our Frosty the Snowman holiday treats. They are easily portable and self-contained. To add a little holiday festivity to our vanilla pudding cups, I headed to WALMART for all my holiday snack supplies.
You can find all you need for the holidays, from baking ingredients, to holiday varieties of your favorite snacks, like OREOS, as well as awesome holiday craft supplies.
I grabbed the Super Snack Pack Vanilla pudding cups, as well as Winter OREOS, marshmallows, miniature candy covered chocolates and melting chocolates for the edible portion of our Frosty holiday treats.
From the craft aisle, I picked up craft glue, black permanent marker and some fun holiday ribbon to complete our Frosty cups. You will also need a black food pen.
Building Your Frosty Holiday Treats
To make your Frosty the Snowman pudding cup, start by decorating the cup itself as the body of your snowman. Use a black permanent marker to add buttons down the front of your cup.
Next, apply a line of sticky, craft glue just under the lip of your pudding cup. Apply your festive, holiday ribbon to the glue. Cut two smaller pieces and tack them on with glue on one corner to create your snowman’s scarf.
Now, for the mix-in fun! To make Frosty’s hat, melt your melting chocolate per package instructions. Insert a toothpick into your marshmallow and coat it with melted chocolate. You may need to use a spoon to evenly cover and spread the chocolate on your marshmallow.
Drop it onto the center of a Winter OREO. The red filling makes for the perfect top hat trim! Place your Frosty hats in the refrigerator to set for 5-10 minutes.
While your top hats are setting, use a black food pen to draw a snowman face on a marshmallow. Insert an orange, miniature candy-coated chocolate for a nose, by pressing it firmly into the center of the marshmallow.
When the chocolate on your top hats has hardened, assemble your Frosty pudding cup! Just in time to settle in and watch Frosty this year, airing on CBS on Saturday, November 28th!
