Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan set over low heat. Add marshmallows; cook, stirring until melted and well blended. Stir in vanilla. Add cereal; stir until coated.
  2. Divide the mixture and lightly pack into three 250 ml (1 cup) portions, three 125 ml (1/2 cup) portions and three 75 ml (1/3 cup) portions.
  3. Working quickly, with damp hands, form each portion into a firmly packed round ball with a slightly flattened bottom. Stack the balls, three high, biggest to smallest to create three figures.
  4. Spread a thin layer of frosting all over each figure. Place the coconut in a shallow dish. Roll each figure in the coconut until well coated.
  5. Use melted chocolate and M&M'S® Holiday Mix Chocolate candies to create 'eyes', 'noses' and 'buttons' on the figures. Wrap licorice around the base of the smallest ball as a 'scarf'. Gently push the pretzel sticks into each side of the middle balls for 'arms'.

Footnotes

  • Tip 1: To secure snowmen, gently push a skewer through the top ball to connect all three. Trim skewer so that it is not visible and reshape the balls as needed.
  • Tip 2: Have the kids form extra Rice Krispies* mixture around M&M'S® Peanut Holiday Mix candies to make small balls that can be frosted and rolled in coconut to resemble "snowballs" with a hidden surprise.
  • Tip 3: Lightly grease your utensils and cup measures when portioning the balls to make it easier to release.
  • In keeping with good allergy practices, we remind you to be aware of allergens and to check labels on any packaged goods used. This recipe has been tested using Kellogg's* products. Results with other products may vary.
