1 2 3
Have your little one(s) help to mix the snowball frosting with a standing or hand mixer. To make the delightful snowball frosting, mix the wet snow (mascarpone), dry snow (powdered sugar) and vanilla extract until combined. Using a biscuit cutter or varying-sized glasses/bowls, start building Frosty! Have your child help you cut the bread into circles to resemble a snowman (three circles for each snowman). In a medium bowl, have the little one(s) help you whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt. Set aside. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and melt butter. Once the pan is warm, have your little snowflake(s) soak each piece of bread in the egg mixture on both sides and place them in the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and flip with a spatula after a couple of minutes or once browned. Flip and repeat with the other side. Repeat with the other slices, soaking and then cooking. Set each piece aside once it’s done cooking. Top each piece of French toast with a tablespoon of snowball frosting. Have your little helpers place chocolate chips on the face to make eyes, a smile, and buttons along the body. Using a knife, cut a piece of orange peel to resemble a nose. Use pretzel sticks for arms and top with syrup if desired.
