Coconut Rice Krispie Snowmen

If you use a 10-ounce jar of marshmallow fluff in place of the marshmallows, your snowmen will be even whiter.

      Put the coconut in a shallow bowl. Butter a 9x9-inch pan well. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Stir in the Rice Krispies and turn the mixture into the prepared pan. (If you leave it in the saucepan while you work, you won’t be able to get it out!)

      Butter your hands lightly and roll spoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Roll each ball in the coconut, and then press them together to form snowmen. Set the snowmen upright on the wax paper.

      For each snowman, press two pretzel arms into the sides of the middle ball. Cut the orange tip off a piece of candy corn and press it into the middle of the face for a nose. Press Red Hots or another round candy up the front to make buttons.

      Use Nerds or dragees or another small round candy to make eyes and a grin. For the final touch, slice off a strip of fruit leather and wrap it around the snowman’s neck for a scarf.
