My DD's twist on the Bakerella invention.
- white cake, from a box mix
- 1 1⁄2 cups buttercream frosting
- 1 (20 ounce) package almond bark
- 20 lollipop sticks
- 20 orange colored chocolate covered sunflower seeds
- 5 slices sour belt candies
- 40 m&ms candies
- twizzlers candy
- 1 large round candy sprinkles
- black food color pen or black food coloring and a toothpick
- Crumble the cake and mix with buttercream frosting.
- Scoop out into 2 inch balls, shape into pears, and freeze on a parchment lined sheet.
- When they are set, insert the lollipop sticks into the heavy end of the pears. Freeze some more.
- Set up a snowman assembly line. First the M&Ms, then the sour belts(cut into fourths, in half lengthwise and crosswise), then the sunflower seeds, then the twizzlers (separated and cut into 3/4 inch lengths), then the button sprinkles, then the styrofoam block.
- In a double boiler or in the microwave, melt the almond bark.
- One at a time, assemble the snowmen like so;.
- Dip the pear into the almond bark and roll so that it is completely coated, down to the stick. Tap off excess so that the coat is nice and thin, and smooth the drip.
- Place an M&M on either side of the snowman's head for the muffs.
- Wrap a sour belt around the snowman's neck.
- Apply the snowman's nose (orange sunflower seed).
- Link the two muffs together with a piece of twizzler.
- By this time, the coat has probably dried up. You may have to use a toothpick and use some of the almond bark as "glue" for the snowman's buttons.
- When all pieces are on, stick the snowman in the styrofoam block for him to dry.
- Repeat steaps 7-13 until all the snowmen are assembled.
- Once dry, you can draw on or paint on the snowmen's faces with a black food color pen or just black food coloring and a toothpick.
