TURNING MOZZARELLA INTO AN OLAF SNOWMAN CHEESE SNACK

Our kids really love snowmen, and get excited whenever they see any Olaf merchandise. While I’ve seen a lot of cute edible Olafs, made out of marshmallows or cookies, all over Pinterest, I couldn’t find any sugar free versions.

So I thought it would be fun to make some healthier Olaf snacks, since feeding a toddler and preschooler marshmallows right after nap time would not end well for any of us.

HOW TO MAKE AN OLAF SNOWMAN CHEESE SNACK

If you’d like to make your kiddo an Olaf snowman cheese snack, it’s ridiculously easy.

All you need is a package of fresh mozzarella (I get mine from Costco, and love that it’s already sliced), a baby carrot, two pretzel sticks, a sheet of seaweed (or nori), and a knife and pair of scissors. You could use the scissors to cut out your round eyes and buttons, but I’ve found that it’s even easier with a hole punch.

You can follow the video at the beginning of the post, or use the printable recipe instructions.

I’ve probably made this Olaf snowman cheese snack a dozen times over the past few years. Corban has gone from his baby exclamations of, “Snowman! Cheese Snowman! Cute!”, to “Oh thank you mama! You made me a cheese Olaf! I love him!”.

Hope your kids love cheesey Olaf as much as mine do!

Ingredients
  • 4 slices round of fresh mozzarella
  • 1 sheet of seaweed nori
  • 1 baby carrot
  • 2 pretzel sticks
Instructions
  1. Place a full sized circle of mozzarella on your plate for the bottom snowball.
  2. Use a pair of scissors to cut out a smaller circle for the middle snowball. The excess pieces you snip off are perfect mommy snacks!
  3. Snip four corners off of another slice of mozzarella to make a rounded diamond for Olaf's head. You may need to slightly round your edges so the head isn't too angular.
  4. Cut an edge off of another mozzarella slice and then snip that edge in half to form two legs. Don't eat the bigger piece that's leftover yet, you'll need to snip off a little bit of it for Olaf's tooth and eyes.
  5. Use your scissors to cut out three round buttons of seaweed, and a mouth shape as well.
  6. Use the leftover piece of mozzarella (from his legs) to cut out a rectangular tooth and two circles for eyes.
  7. Cut out two more small circles of seaweed for his eyeballs.
  8. Use a knife to cut off an angular piece of carrot for Olaf's nose.
  9. Put the two pretzel sticks in place for arms.
  10. Finally, cut some very thin strips of seaweed to use for hair and eyebrows.
Recipe Notes

Approximate cost/serving: I only use about 1/5 of a package of mozzarella, so this adorable snack ends up costing me about 80 cents!
Vegetarian/Gluten free: This is meat free, but obviously contains dairy. For gluten free, use gluten free pretzel sticks

BABY CORBAN TRYING OLAF SNOWMAN CHEESE SNACK FOR THE FIRST TIME (2014)

The first time I made the Olaf snowman cheese snack, Corban had never actually had fresh mozzarella before. As you can see in the video, he wasn’t quite sure about his first bite, but quickly took a second one. Oh, and the pretzels were definitely a hit.
