These hard-boiled egg snowmen are the perfect item to add a little cheer to your holiday appetizer table. They are also a fun project to do with kids! Check out our stop motion video and our step-by-step tutorial to see how to make these wintry treats.


  • Boil eggs for 9-10min


  • Peel immediately so that the shells don’t rip apart the meat of the egg (they will start to stick to the egg if the eggs cool too much, you can run them under cold water to help peel)


  • Trim the edges of the eggs that touch so that they sit together better
  • Attache 2 eggs with a grilling skewer leaving about 1/2 inch sticking out the top
  • Trim the bottom of the snowmen so that it will stand


  • Push peppercorns into the egg surface for the buttons and eyes and mouth, you will need to poke a hole with a skewer or carve out a small hole so that the peppercorn fits and doesn’t tear the egg apart.


  • With a large carrot and a small carrot cut the 2 hat parts
  • Cut a hole in them for the skewer, but not all the way through the top of the hat.
  • Put the hat on.
  • Carve small piece of carrot into a nose
  • Attach nose by cutting out a small hole in the face to fit the nose.
  • Use a toothpick to make holes on the sides for the parsley arms.
  • Attach fresh parsley for the arms.
