String Cheese Snowmen

Christmas is a wonderful time of year, but it's not usually so nice to the waistline. Most of us indulge since it "only comes once a year", then we regret it when our jeans are a little extra snug when the new year rolls around. To help keep us in check, it's a good idea to keep some fun, festive, and healthy snacks around during this Christmas season. These little String Cheese Snowmen are the perfect way to do that!

What you need:

string cheese
ribbon, any color
black permanent marker
orange paper (or orange permanent marker)
black paper


1. Gather up your supplies.

2. Tie your ribbon around the string cheese. 

(You can curl the ends by carefully sliding the ribbon across your scissor blade, or you can leave them straight.)

3. Cut out a small "top hat" using the black paper and tape it on the end of the cheese stick.

4. Cut out a small "carrot nose" using the orange paper, and tape it in place.

(You can also use an orange permanent marker, if you choose to do so.)

5. Using the black permanent marker, draw your eyes, mouth, and buttons on your "snowman" to finish him off.

How cute would a little tray of these be at your next Christmas party??

Now, don't completely pass up the fudgy, calorie-laden bars and cookies this Christmas season. You still have to have your fair share. This is just another option, so you don't have to eat the whole pan of bars. :)

Have a very Merry Christmas!!
