PROCESS

  1. Start by spreading your cream cheese on two round salty crackers and place one above the other on a large plate. You can use any type of cream cheese you like – my kids prefer savory cream cheese spreads like garlic & herb, chives & onion, or vegetable garden. You can also use plain cream cheese, if you prefer.
  2. Cut the carrot in a tiny triangle to form the nose.
  3. Two peppercorns will form the eyes, so place the peppercorns and carrot on one of the crackers.
  4. Seeds make cute buttons so put them on the other cracker. You can use sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, etc.
  5. Finally, cut a red bell pepper into thin strips and turn them into festive scarves by putting them in between the two crackers.
  6. Repeat this process as many times as snowman you want on your Christmas table.
  7. Enjoy!
