A "Frosty" Treat

The kids are antsy, their is so much going on!  Why not give them a treat in their lunch box and surprise them with some holiday cheer!  Well, this was my thought too and I created a fun little character who is completely edible!

Start by getting your supplies:

3 large Marshmallows
craisins or raisins
peanut butter
stick pretzels

Connect the three marshmallows by lighting the bottom and pressing together to extinguish the flame which melts the marshmallows together.  Be careful with this step and if you're shy of doing this just take a stick pretzel and stick it in the middle of one marshmallow, then into the other marshmallow to connect them (add peanut butter for extra stick).  Next using a knife cut a hole for the two eyes, mouth and each button.  Shove the Craisin/raisin in each hole.  Lastly, put peanut butter on the Rolo and stick it to the top of the snowman's head.  If you wish add stick pretzels for arms.  Now, wrap him up or bag him with a note to your kids to enjoy their "Frosty" treat!

If your kids aren't in school yet, have them help make their own!

I'm not big on giving kids sugar, but sometimes it is alright to go against our instincts and give the kids a treat!
