Start singing the lyrics to “Frosty the Snowman” as you look through these recipe ideas. You can make your own sweet version of the jolly, happy soul with a corn cob pipe and two eyes made out of coal (just use chocolate chips and orange-colored candies for the face). For quick and easy recipes, try the powdered donut snowmen, frosty snowman pretzels or the chocolate snowman spoon recipes. Let your kids get covered with crumbs while making the Oreo snowman cookie balls. Then again, you can bring out your kids’ artistic side by putting together either snowman cupcakes or chocolaty melting snowman. The best part about these snowmen is they won’t melt – the way you make them disappear is by eating them!
Powdered Donut Snowmen
With this powdered donut snowmen recipe from Worth Pinning, you can make dozens of goodies all at once. Lace three mini powdered donuts through a wooden skewer.

Frosty Snowman Pretzels
This clever recipe for frosty snowman pretzels from Hungry Happenings uses white candy coating and pretzels. Fill circle-shaped pretzels with the melted coating and let them set until hardened.

Chocolate Snowman Spoons
