    • A Jolly, Happy Soul

      What better than the iconic Hostess Sno Ball to form a roly-poly Frosty? Place the sweet treat on a skinny eggcup or cordial glass for comic proportions.

      Make the snowman head by using a toothpick to attach a frosted and decorated marshmallow or doughnut hole. Black gel is perfect for eyes and buttons.

    • Two Eyes Make Out Of Coal

      Petite candy mints make for an icy and welcoming treat. Draw snowmen faces and pretty script with edible markets from the cake-decorating aisle at the crafts store. To give them as a gift, arrange a grid on card stock and adhere the mints with a dot of royal icing. Slide the assortment into a cellophane bag and add a ribbon tie and tag.

    • Made Of Snow

      Edible markers transform purchased pfferneuse cookies into fun snowman faces. If you can't find these traditional German cookies, any white treat will work. Slice a marshmallow in half, for example. To give them as a gift, nestle the treats into muffin tins with white nonpareils and wrap with cellophane.

    • He Is A Fairy Tale, They Say

      Fill a large cake plate with white-frosted cupcakes and then fill in details of a snowman face with more orange and black frosting. Sprinkle the cupcakes with white cake sparkles for a snow-crystal finish.

    • We'll Have Some Fun

      Creamy eggnog- the adult or child-friendly version-takes center stage in this Frosty vessel made from a large rose bowl. For a temporary design, paint the inside of the glass with melted orange and black chocolate coating. Or, to use the bowl and glasses, next year, use glass paint from the crafts store to add the faces to the outside of the glass.

    • Look At Frosty Go

      A glass of milk takes on new deliciousness with doughnut-hole snowmen heads. Outfit powdered doughnut holes with eyes and a nose made of edible food clay. Pierce a hole through the center of the doughnut using a skewer and fit in a straw. Make a miniature scarf for the glass from orange yarn and trim it with scrapbook brads in the shape of snowflakes.
