Snowmen are something you see a lot of in Michigan this time of year. If you don’t live where you get a huge snowfall in Winter, you might think that every snowfall that sticks to the ground makes for optimal snow play. Those of us that live with snow know better. Some snow is feathery, some wet and heavy, some doesn’t make for good sliding, packing, or skiing and the list goes on! Try an explain to a little one who has been wanting to make a snowman since summer just WHY he can’t because it is the wrong type of snow! You will never appease that question, “But WHY.”
Serving size: 1
Fat: 3 g
- ¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
- 1 pkg. (10-1/2 oz.) miniature marshmallows (6 cups)
- 1 pkg. (13 oz.) Fruity Pebbles Cereal (about 8-1/2 cups)
- Christmas m&m's

- Grease 2 (9-inch) round cake pans lightly; set aside. Microwave butter in 4-qt. microwaveable bowl on HIGH 45 sec. or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave 1-1/2 min. or until marshmallows are completely melted, stirring after 45 sec. 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 icing to resemble the scarf and hat band, and with m&m's to resemble eyes, nose, mouth and buttons.
