    Roll marzipan into log shape; divide into 8 portions. Divide each portion into large (1 1/4-inch) ball, medium (1-inch) ball and small (3/4-inch) ball.

    For each snow person, poke 1 slivered almond into center of chocolate-covered peppermint candy. Place large ball over almond, gently pushing downward to attach.

    Using toothpick, make holes in face of snowman for eyes and nose. Place 2 brown oblong sprinkles into holes to look like eyes. Place 1 oblong sprinkle in hole to look like nose. If desired, make holes for buttons and add colored oblong sprinkles. Place 2 slivered almonds in center of middle ball to look like arms.
  • 4
    Unroll fruit snacks. For scarf; cut eight 5x1/2-inch strips. Fold each strip in half horizontally, leaving 1 inch on each end unfolded; make small cuts at ends for fringe. Wrap around neck, slightly overlapping at shoulder. To make base of hats, cut eight 3/4-inch diameter circles of fruit snack. Place fruit snack round on snowman's head. Insert slivered almond halfway down into center. Cut off and discard 1/8 inch off bottom of gumdrop; flatten bottom slightly. Attach onto slivered almond to finish hat.

Expert Tips

  • If the marzipan is hard or crumbly; gently knead in a small amount of corn syrup, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired softness.
  • Use the decorations as place cards. Make flags from small pieces of paper and attach to snow people with toothpicks.
