Frozen Snowman Banana Pops

We wouldn't recommend snacking on these frozen banana pops right after building a real snowman, but once you're warm and toasty inside, they make a great winter treat. Cover frozen banana slices with melted white chocolate, then decorate with an orange sprinkle nose, mini chocolate chip eyes, and buttons. Peanut butter cup hats or fruit leather scarves will add extra sweetness.

You won't need a winter jacket to build a line of these snowmen. Instead, stack marshmallows into snowmen and use melted chocolate, pretzel sticks, and orange candies to create faces, arms, and buttons. To make these treats even tastier, dip the bottom of your snowman in a delicious mix of caramel, chocolate, and toasted coconut.

One of the best things about making snowmen out of sugar cookies instead of snow? You can get even more creative and make them any shape you want. Take a break from roly-poly snowmen and use square cookie cutters instead. We decorated them using colored royal icing, but sprinkles and tiny candies make sweet faces and buttons.

You don't need actual snow to make stacked snowmen. Once you whip together a quick meringue, you can pipe balls on top of each other to create realistic snowmen. (And you can build them as high as you want.) Once baked, insert an orange sprinkle for a carrot nose and pipe on melted chocolate to create arms, buttons, and a smiling face.
