Holiday Snowman

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes


  • ¼ cup (½ stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 ½ ounces) miniature marshmallows (6 cups)
  • 1 package (13 ounces) Fruity PEBBLES™ cereal (about 8 ½ cups)
  • 1 chewy fruit snack roll
  • 6 ring-shaped chewy fruit snacks
  • 3 bite-size chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 strawberries & crème flavor soft candy


  • Grease 2 (9-inch) round cake pans lightly; set aside. Microwave butter in 4 quart microwaveable bowl on HIGH 45 seconds or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave 1 ½ minutes or until marshmallows are completely melted, stirring after 45 seconds. Add cereal; mix well.
  • Remove 1 cup of the cereal mixture; shape to resemble the snowman's hat. Press remaining cereal mixture evenly into prepared cake pans. Cool completely.
  • Remove cereal rounds from pans; place on large cutting board or serving platter to resemble head and body of snowman. Place hat on the snowman's head. Decorate with fruit roll to resemble the scarf and hat band, and with fruit snacks to resemble eyes and nose. Add cookies for the buttons. Gently stretch soft candy into 2-inch length and use for mouth.
