Makes 6 servings
  • 1/2 gallon eggnog or vanilla ice cream
  • Cake decorating candies or mini chocolate chips
  • 6 peppermint patties
  • 6 licorice gumdrops or small peanut butter cups
  • 6 pieces red licorice
  • 12 chocolate-dipped reception sticks
  • 6 small candy canes
  • Shredded, sweetened coconut or white chocolate shavings

1. Place a large scoop of ice cream on a dessert plate then place a smaller scoop on top. Decorate ice cream like a snowman, using cake decorating candies or mini chocolate chips to make eyes, mouths and buttons (see Note).

2. Place a peppermint patty on snowman's "head" and place a gumdrop or peanut butter cup askew on top of the patty, making a top hat. Wrap a piece of red licorice between the two ice cream scoops to make a scarf.

3. Stick 2 reception sticks into the larger scoop to make arms and hang a candy cane on one of the arms. Scatter coconut or white chocolate shavings lightly around and on top of each snowman.

4. Store in freezer while making 5 more snowmen with remaining ingredients, then serve.

Note: Work quickly or freeze between steps so the ice cream won't melt!
