1. Olaf Marshmallows: Start by cutting your jumbo size marshmallows in half (you will need two halves for each snowman). Shape the edges of one of the halves to form more of an oblong shape for Olaf’s head. Save the other half to use as the base of his body. 

2. Next, fill your plastic bag with chocolate icing and cut a small hole in one corner to use as a piping bag. Use the icing to attach candy eyes and to create eyebrows and a smiling mouth. Grab your orange gumdrops and a pair of scissors and cut into small triangles for his nose. While you have your scissors out, cut a small rectangle from one of your marshmallow scraps for a tooth. Attach nose and tooth using chocolate icing.

3. Next, grab the other half of your jumbo marshmallow and large marshmallow to build Olaf’s body. Using your chocolate icing, attach three chocolate chips as buttons. Once icing has dried (about five minutes) assemble Olaf on your skewer, starting with the larger body marshmallow and finishing with his head on top.

4. Lastly, cut three 1” pieces from your licorice string and score one edge to create frayed hair and three fingers. Poke arms into the smaller body marshmallow and hair into the top of Olaf’s head. 

5. Milkshake: Start by blending milk and ice cream in blender until creamy (about one minute). Before pouring into glasses, rim the edges in vanilla icing using a blunt butter knife and sprinkle with sugar to give an icy appearance.

6. Place a few drops of blue food coloring into the glasses to add a pop of color. Once glasses are filled, top with whipped cream and sprinkles. Finish off by adding your Olaf marshmallow creation and enjoy!

Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
