Food that is made to look like snowmen is usually a sweet treat, but it’s nice to have some cute foods that are savory, too! I liked how this snowman from Martha Stewart is covered is grated cheese, it makes him look soft and fluffy. He’s made from balls that are created from cream cheese, Jack cheese and seasonings, and then the balls are rolled in grated cheese. Dark bread and veggies are what is used to decorate this yummy snowman! Great for a Winter party!

Cheesy Snowman How-To

Serves 6 to 8

1 pound cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Celery, clove, pumpernickel slice, black olives, and carrot

1. In a food processor, combine cream cheese (reserve a spoonful for hat), 1/2 cup Monterey Jack, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Freeze until firm, 30 minutes.

2. Shape mixture into 3 balls; roll balls in remaining Monterey Jack. Freeze until firm, about 1 hour.

3. Just before serving, stack balls; secure with toothpicks. Use vegetable peeler to shave celery scarf; pin with clove. Cut bread into 1- and 1 1/2-inch rounds; glue hat together with cream cheese, then secure with toothpick. Punch dots from olives with plain round pastry tips, and cut end off carrot; press in place. Serve with crackers.
