How To Make A Marzipan Snowman Recipe
These cute little snowmen can be a welcomed winter decoration for show or a delicious treat to eat. The kids will enjoy making these snowmen as much as the adults.



Yield: 3 snowmen (2-2 1/2 inch high, 1-2 inches high)


  • 1-7 oz box Odense Marzipan
  • Food coloring paste*, gel, or liquid (colors of choice)
  • Confectioners or granulated sugar
  • *Paste food coloring is generally preferred over liquid, as it won't change the consistency of the Marzipan, as the liquid may.
1. To make your snowmen, leave Marzipan neutral or tint by kneading in a small amount of food coloring, adding more color as needed. If tinting Marzipan, leave a small amount uncolored to tint orange for carrot noses.
2. Divide the Marzipan into 3 sections. Make 3 balls from each section, large, medium andsmall. Roll in sugar of choice, depending on the coating you prefer. (Image)
3. Using a toothpick as a spine, stack the 3 balls to make the snowman (largest ball for bottom, to smallest for head).
4. Press into snowman: The nail shaped end of cloves leaving the flower part for eyes, Marzipan nose and twigs for arms. Repeat with remaining balls.
5. Note: Be as creative as you wish. Yarn for a scarf, leftover Marzipan for a top hat ... the sky's the limit.
