Earlier this month, I whipped together some mini-cupcake shooters using the reusable push-up containers I purchased from here. Today, I decided to make snowman push-ups! They were really easy and according to my children - very tasty.
* Push-up Containers
* Mini powdered sugar donuts AND donut holes
* Mini M&Ms
* Orange Mike & Ikes (or candy corn)
* Round chocolate wafer cookie (I used a Thin Mint)
* Rolo Candies
* Peel-A-Part Twizzlers
* Chocolate and White Frosting
I started with a dollop of frosting on the base and then gently placed a mini-donut into the tube. You need to do this carefully so that you do not scrape off the powdered sugar when you push it down into the container.
As you can see, the cup gets dirty during this stage, use a lightly dampened rag to wipe off the powder sugar off the edge and interior. Next, attach a brown mini-M&M to a donut hole using a small amount of chocolate frosting. If necessary, scrape away a bit of the sugar so that the frosting can adhere to the donut itself.
For the scarf, I used a couple of strands of pull-a-part Twizzlers. I trimmed them, created a small ribbon shape and gently placed it on top of the middle donut hole pushing the ends down into the cup. Be careful to not scrape the powder sugar off the donut.
Now push an orange Mike & Ike or candy corn into a donut hole for a nose and secure with a small amount of frosting inside the hole. Use chocolate frosting to make two small eyes and place the head on top of the scarf.
