Fa-La-La-La-La Festival

White Chocolate Snowmen

Age level: 6 to 12

Scripture: Psalm 145:8-9

Materials: White chocolate melting pieces, marshmallows, toothpicks, 3-inch round cookies, chow mein noodles, black and white tube icing, a saucepan, Hershey's Kisses chocolates, access to a stovetop, and paper plates.

Alert: You'll need an adult to heat the white chocolate candy and several adults to supervise kids as they dip their marshmallows.

Make these cute, delicious snowmen with your class as you celebrate the glory of God.

Have an adult heat the white chocolate candy over very low heat in a saucepan. While the candy is heating, give each child a paper plate, one round cookie, two marshmallows, two chow mein noodles, and two toothpicks. Kids will place their cookies in the center of their paper plates and spear the flat end of each marshmallow with a toothpick.

Once the candy is completely melted (this may take a while, since you must use the lowest heat setting on the stovetop), have kids carefully dip one marshmallow into the melted candy, completely covering the marshmallow. Then kids will place their marshmallow on the center top of the round cookie, using their fingers to slide the marshmallow off the toothpick.

Have kids dip their second marshmallow into the melted candy using the same technique. They'll place the second marshmallow on top of the first, and then place an unwrapped Hershey's Kisses chocolate on top of the second marshmallow for the snowman's hat. Have kids place the chow mein noodles on opposite sides of the top of the marshmallow to create the snowman's arms. Allow the snowmen to cool completely.

To finish decorating the snowmen, have kids draw buttons, a nose, mouth, and eyes on the snowman using black tube icing. They can put a white icing "puff" on top of the snowman's hat and trim on the bottom of the hat.
