Build a Snowman Dessert


1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1 cup crushed pineapple, drain and press out excess juice
½ cup powdered sugar (omit for a no-sugar added dessert)
2 cups shredded coconut
pretzel sticks
shredded carrot
1. Mix the softened cream cheese and the crushed pineapple in a bowl. Add the powdered sugar if desired. Return to the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to chill.

2. Scoop a spoonful of the mixture to make a ball about 1 ½ inches across. Roll in the shredded coconut to cover and place on a baking sheet covered with wax paper. Continue making smaller balls, until you have enough for three per snowman. Return the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm.

3. Stack three balls on top of each other to make a snowman. Decorate with pretzel sticks for arms, pieces of raisins for coal eyes and a piece of shredded carrot for a noise. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Makes 5-6 snowman.
