Mashed Potato Snowmen

15 MIN
15 MIN
8 snowmen, approximately




  1. In a saucepan, cook the potatoes in salted water until very tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
  2. With a masher, mash the potatoes with the butter. With an electric mixer, purée the mixture with the milk. Adjust the seasoning. The purée should be firm.
  3. With three different sizes of ice cream scoops, shape three balls of potatoes.
  4. Create the eyes with two pink peppercorns, the nose with a piece of carrot and place a sprig of rosemary as a broomstick.


To shape the balls, take a 90 ml (6 tablespoons) ice cream scoop for the biggest ball, a 60 ml (1/4 cup) scoop for the medium ball, then a 30 ml (2 tablespoons) scoop for the smallest.
This recipe is an idea from my friend Bob Blumer, chef and host at the Food Network.
