Christmas Countdown

It’s just one more week till Christmas and it’s time to kick back and relax.

Yeah right. There’s no rest for a Scouter!

A little filler for you to try either at home or at your group though are these delicious marshmallow snowmen. You will need:

  • pretzel sticks
  • marshmallows
  • Gummy sweet for nose (ice cream cones are pretty good)
  • little bit of melted chocolate

Stick three marshmallows atop each other with either melted chocolate or by skewering with pretzel sticks.

Stick in pretzel stick arms and feet (out the front rather than below- pretzel legs are delicious, but not very stable!)

Use a pretzel stick or knife to create a hole for the nose, then slide in the sweet to form a nose (just trying to jam it in crushes the head- poor little guy!)

Use a thin piping bag or cocktail stick to draw on chocolate buttons, eyes and a mouth.

Allow to relax in a hot Chocolate jacuzzi. 🙂

Merry Christmas!
