Ingredients

7 oz
marzipan, divided
200 g
2 tbsp
icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
30 mL
toothpicks
red food colouring
orange food colouring
2 tbsp
20 mini chocolate chips
30 mL

Directions

Step 1
Line a baking pan or large tray with waxed paper. Roll four 2-tsp (10-mL) portions of marzipan into balls; place on lined pan. Roll another four 1-tsp (5-mL) portions of marzipan into smaller balls and an additional four 1/2-tsp (2-mL) portions of marzipan into even smaller balls (there should be leftover marzipan). Sift icing sugar into small bowl; roll each marzipan ball in icing sugar; shake off excess and return balls to lined pan.
Step 2
Place a toothpick down the centre of the largest ball, exposing just enough toothpick to secure the medium and small balls on top. Press the medium-sized ball through the toothpick onto the largest ball, then spear the smallest ball on top. Repeat building snowman shapes with remaining balls.
Step 3
Add 1 to 2 drops red food colouring to 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the leftover marzipan (there will be some leftover); knead thoroughly to incorporate. Roll red marzipan into 1/8-in. (3-mm) thick rectangle, dusting with icing sugar to prevent sticking. Slice into four strips for "scarves". Wrap one scarf around each snowman neck, pressing gently to adhere. To remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) plain marzipan, add 1 to 2 drops orange food colouring; kneading thoroughly to incorporate. Roll into 4 small cones to form carrot noses. Using a toothpick, make an indent on the snowman’s face to insert the marzipan carrot nose; press gently to adhere. Make 4 noses.
Step 4
Pressing the pointy end of mini chocolate chips into the marzipan, secure 2 chocolate chips above the nose for "eyes" and 3 chocolate chips down the front of the snowman for buttons. Break toothpicks in half and press into sides to form arms on all snowmen.

Tip

Use different shades of food colouring to make scarves in multiple colours.
