These adorable Melted Snowman White Chocolates are a fun and easy craft and a fun holiday treat to make with your kids! You only need dairy-free white chocolate, coconut oil, large vegan marshmallows, chocolate chips and orange food coloring to make this winter sweet treat!
They really are so simple to make. All you need to make these Melted Snowman White Chocolates is:
☆ dairy-free white chocolate chips (I like the Enjoy Life brand)
☆ coconut oil
☆ regular mini chocolate chips (also the Enjoy Life brand)
☆ large vegan marshmallows
☆ orange food coloring, preferably plant-based
☆ 3 small bowls
First, add a piece of wax or parchment paper to a baking sheet.
Next, add white chocolate chips to a small bowl with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds at a time until melted.
With a spoon, spread the white chocolate into a puddle-like blob. Don’t spread the chocolate too thin or it will break when you peel it off the wax/parchment paper.
Add a large marshmallow to the top of the white chocolate blob.
Add 3 dark chocolate chips as the buttons underneath the marshmallow, not all in a row, because remember this is a melting snowman and we want to give the impression of it being melted.
Place a little bit of melted white chocolate on the back of 2 chocolate chips and place those on the marshmallow as the eyes. You can dot the chocolate chips with melted white chocolate for pupils with a toothpick.
Melt 2-3 tablespoons of white chocolate chips with 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil and use the melted chocolate and a toothpick to draw stick arms on the white chocolate blob, in different directions if you want to make them look a little like the wicked witch of the west… “I’m melting… melting!” haha
Dot melted dark chocolate on the marshmallow for the mouth.
Melt 2-3 tablespoons white chocolate chips in a bowl with 1-2 drops of orange food coloring, melt with a little bit of coconut oil and use the mixture to make carrot noses on the marshmallows with a toothpick (or fine paintbrush), making the carrot nose thicker at the top.
Repeat as desired until everything is used up or melt more chcoloate and repeat for however many you’d like to make. Allow them to cool to set up. Then gently peel off the wax/parchment paper when ready to enjoy! Store in an airtight container on your counter.
☆ Don’t melt the chocolate too long or you’ll cook it and your melted chocolate blobs will be lumpy. I suggest starting with 30 seconds, stirring and microwaving 5 seconds more at a time as needed.
☆ Don’t spread the chocolate too thin or it will break when you peel it off the wax/parchment paper.
☆ It’s best to use white chocolate to stick the eyes onto the marshmallows so they don’t end up looking like snowmen bandits! LOL
☆ Make sure you have a decent amount of orange white chocolate on the toothpick to make the nose and start with a thicker amount for the base and gently move it away to create the tip of the carrot (as shown in the video). You can also use a very fine/small paint brush if desired.
☆ It’s best to wait until the white chocolate blob sets before adding the stick arms with the dark chocolate, otherwise when they harden the arms will be super light.
☆ The recipe is just a guide, if you want to make more go for it! Just melt more chocolate!
☆ Have fun with it! They don’t have to be perfect 😉
Aside from just enjoying these adorable Melted Snowman White Chocolates as is, here are a couple of other ideas on how to embellish your holiday desserts!
☆ add on top of Rice Krispie treats
☆ add on top of cookies
☆ on top of brownies
☆ in your hot cocoa
☆ on top of cupcakes or cake
