Marshmallow & Pretzel Snowman


  • Mix together 100ml of cold water and 14g of gelatin in a bowl and leave to sit.

  • Add the sugar and 170ml of cold water to a pan and bring to a boil over a medium or high heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar.

  • Decrease the heat to a low simmer for 20 minutes or until the temperature drops to 110C. This is when you pour the gelatine and water in to a blender or food processor and blend on the lowest setting. Slowly and gradually pour in the sugar water (careful it will be hot) and mix.

  • Add the vanilla extract and blend for 20 minutes or until the mixture becomes thick and cool.

  • Line a square baking tin with baking paper or grease with oil. Mix the icing sugar and cornflour together and sprinkle some on top of the baking paper or oiled tray.

  • Spoon the marshmallow mixture in to the tin, making sure the surface is smooth by using a knife. Dust with some of the icing sugar and cornflour.

  • Cover the tin with clingfilm and leave on the side over night.

  • Now that the marshmallow has set, cut out your desired shape. Add three marshmallows to a toothpick and add pretzel sticks for arms and legs. Melt chocolate and form the snowman's features. Finally use an orange sweet for the nose.

  • Garnish hot drinks with your snowman creations or add to a plate for a festive snack.
