Combine the cream cheese, butter, dry pudding mix and coconut extract in a large bowl. Use a hand mixer on low speed then gradually increase the speed to whip the mixture. Once it's smooth add the confectioners' sugar and mix slowly to star then gradually increase the speed until the mixture is smooth.
Roll the dough into multiples of three different size balls for the snowman so they stack nicely. You can roll by hand or use plastic wrap to form the balls. Place the balls in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Remove the dough from the fridge and roll each ball in coconut. Set aside.
Begin to decorate the snowmen with candy.
I used bell shaped chocolate candies for the hat.
I used mini chocolate covered candies for the eyes and buttons.
I used original fruit chews for the nose and cut it down with a knife then shaped with my hands.
I used fruit flavoured roll ups for the scarf and mouth. I cut them with scissors then shaped them by hand.
I used mini pretzel sticks for the arms.
For dipping you can use any type of mini graham crackers or cookies. You can also use fruit as well.
Enjoy making these with your kids and please feel free to share photos with us so we can see your wonderful holiday creations!
