The forecast is for a blizzard in the kitchen: Kids will get a kick out of building these darling doughnut characters!

Ingredients

1
container (16 oz) creamy vanilla ready-to-spread frosting
6
plain mini cake doughnuts
12
plain cake doughnut holes
2
tablespoons coarse white sugar
6
thin pretzel sticks, broken in half
2
chewy fruit snacks in three-foot rolls (any flavor from 4.5-oz box), cut into six 7- or 8-inch pieces
1
tube Betty Crocker™ black decorating gel (or other colors)
6
orange candy sprinkles
12
candy-coated chocolate or fruit-flavored candies (about 1 tablespoon)

Directions

  • 1 Place 12x12-inch sheet of waxed paper on work surface. In small microwavable bowl, microwave frosting on High 10 to 20 seconds or until soft.
  • 2 For each snowman, dip 1 doughnut into frosting to cover; place on waxed paper. Dip 1 doughnut hole into frosting to cover; press on doughnut for snowman body. Dip second doughnut hole into frosting to cover; press on top of first doughnut hole for head. Sprinkle with about 1 teaspoon coarse sugar. If frosting becomes too thick for dipping, microwave on High 5 to 10 seconds to soften.
  • 3 Gently push 2 pretzel stick pieces into opposite sides near top of each snowman body for arms.
  • 4 Peel off paper from fruit snack roll pieces; fold each in half lengthwise to make scarf. Wrap scarf around neck of each snowman. With scissors, make several thin cuts on each end of each scarf for fringe.
  • 5 With decorating gel, draw dots on heads for eyes; insert orange candy sprinkles for noses.
  • 6 Gently press 1 candy-coated chocolate candy into frosting on each side of each snowman head. Draw line of decorating gel over top of each head to connect 2 candies and form earmuffs. For easier eating, let stand until frosting is set, about 30 minutes. To serve, place on serving tray or platter.

Expert Tips

Mini doughnuts are usually available at convenience stores or near the snack cakes in grocery stores.

To coat the doughnuts and doughnut holes, spear them with a fork and dip them into the softened frosting.
