HONOLULU Family Recipe Corner: Snowmen Marshmallows Perfect for the Holidays

Even Frosty would approve of these adorable toppers for a steaming cup of cocoa.




  • Marshmallows
  • Rainbow chip crunch sprinkles
  • Pumpkin mix sprinkles


  1. Cut a marshmallow in half. This will allow it to float on the cocoa without flipping over.
  2. Dip the cut end in powdered sugar so it won’t stick to the surface.
  3. Use a toothpick to make holes in the marshmallow for the eyes, nose and mouth.
  4. We used an orange sprinkle for the nose and bits of the black sprinkles for the mouth. Black Chip Crunch Sprinkles work for the eyes.
