Supplies to Make a Snoball Snowman Centerpiece:

  • Hostess Sno Balls
  • foam cone
  • two half foam balls
  • circular foam disk
  • styrofoam ball
  • candy melts
  • toothpicks and lollipop sticks
  • soft felt fabric
  • miniature hat
  • cake board

Step 1: To make a giant edible snowman centerpiece, first you need a secure structure. Cut a cake board down into a circle. Secure the two half foam balls onto the cone with toothpicks. This will help the bottom level stick out a little more, like a snowman. Make sure that everything feels stable.

Step 2: Begin adding snowballs to the structure. I tried a few different ways of doing this, and found that melting candy melts to use as a glue worked best. Let the melted candy melts come to almost room temperature but still runny so that you do not have to hold them on as long. Using some toothpicks or lollipop sticks could also help.

I used yellow candy melts for my “glue” because I had it on hand. I was being very careful not to let it get on the front of the Sno Balls. If you feel uneasy about this, use white candy melts!

Step 3: Using a lollipop stick, secure the circular disk and styrofoam ball to the top of the structure to make the head. I cut down the circular disk about 1/2 inch so that it wouldn’t stick out too much.

Step 4: Fill in any holes with more Sno Balls. To make the snowman’s head, cut off about 1/3 of a large marshmallow. Use white candy melts as a glue again, and stick the marshmallows all over, without leaving any large gaps.

Step 5: Finishing touches!!

  • Using a mold, make eyes for the snowman out of different colored candy melts. Stick the eyes on with room temperature candy melts, and hold them in place until they feel secure.
  • To make a nose for your snowman, heat a few orange, red, and pink starbursts in the microwave for about 7 seconds. When the starbursts are soft, mix them together and mold them into the shape of a carrot nose. Stick the nose on with room temperature candy melts, and hold it in place until it feels secure.
  • To make a scarf, I cut bright green soft felt fabric about 5 inches wide. I fringed the edges, and tied it around the circular disk that is under the snowman’s head.
  • To make the hat, I got a miniature snowman hat at a craft store. I painted it and then covered it in glitter.
  • To make the snowman’s stick arms, I took 3 chocolate licorice (if I were doing this again, I would use something sturdier- like thick pretzel rods!) and dipped them in bright pink candy melts. To make the little branch fingers, I broke a licorice in half and dipped it in the same bright pink candy melts. I attached the small branches with the candy melts and let it harden. All of this was “glued” on with a lollipop stick. The stick was pushed into the Stryofoam.
  • To make the Ding-Dong buttons, I used the same bright pink candy melts I used to make the snowman’s arms and painted on little hearts with a spoon. I attached them to the snowman using room temperature candy melts.

Make a cute "free snowball!" pile with #hostessholiday! Your kids will love your snowman party. See it on Design Dazzle.

To make the pile of “Free Snowballs” I cut a styrofoam ball in half to use as the base. I then cut a hole in the top and stuck the cone in, upside down. I then stuck the Donettes in on toothpicks at random directions. It’s that simple!!
