Written on Revised on

This Christmas, mama Kida has decided to create a delicious, one of its kind dessert recipe for the kids’ preschool Christmas party. We are serving a group of 48 preschoolers, but this Christmas treat is suitable for all parties.

The mouth-watering Christmas dessert is a unique blend of warm and cold sensations. It is made from real fruits and various kids’ favourite Christmas treats like ice blocks, chocolate brownies, marshmallows, wafers, and crackers. Tried & tested, our Rudolph Snowman treat is bursting with flavours, even for the littlest picky taste buds.

I came up with this cute Christmas dessert based on our kids’ favourite Christmas characters – Rudolph the reindeer and Frosty the snowman. So rest assured you will surprise your guests with its originality.


love it, pin it, share it!

Disclaimer: I did spend quite some time making all 48 of the Christmas dessert. It’s not a quick and simple recipe as it requires many ingredients, but it’s a treat that will bring a smile to every child’s face!

Christmas Dessert Ingredients and Servings

Many of these ingredients can be replaced by your preferences, so please use mine as a guide and feel free to put your own spin on it!

Depending on the size of your party, the quantity of these ingredients vary. As mentioned previously, I made this for a group of 48 preschoolers.

Most of these ingredients are household necessities, so I wasn’t too stressed about the leftovers. Please watch the videos for references.

We’ll be making this Christmas dessert from the bottom up! Starting with an icy cold real mango ice popsicle that will make up the bottom half of our friend Rudolph’s face.

1. Iced mango base

Peel and blend mango with fruit juice. Fill about 1/3 of the cup and put it into the freezer.

2. Googly eyes

Stick on the googly eyes to give our dessert cup some life.

3. Strawberry 'nose'

Chop up the strawberries into small pieces as Rudolph’s nose. Once iced mango freezes, put a piece of the strawberry 'nose' into position – in-between the googly eyes and put it back into the freezer.

4. Rudolph's 'face'

Next, we’ll complete Rudolph’s face by filling another 1/3 of the cup with your favourite chocolate cake or pudding. You can totally buy ready-made chocolate puddings, cupcakes or muffins.

In my case, I’ve decided to Google the quickest proven recipe^ and try baking myself.

Now Rudolph is almost complete, but before we put the wafer sticks – 'antlers', we’ll make Frosty the snowman first, so the ‘antlers’ won’t be in the way when we put our snowman in.

5. Frosty the snowman

Put 2 chocolate chips on a marshmallow as the 'eyes' of the snowman. Pop it onto a lollipop stick with a blueberry on top.

6. Put a smile on Frosty

Use a strawberry as 'paint' and a spoon as the 'brush', dab some strawberry juice and put a smile on our snowman using a teaspoon.

7. Put the snowman in place

Slide the marshmallow into the cake on an angle and put the cracker in to complete Frosty the snowman.

8. Give our reindeer a pair of 'antlers'

Last but not least, put the wafer sticks in as the 'antlers' for Rudolph.

9. Optional 'snow'/'snowflakes' on top

Sprinkle some coconut flakes or spread some yoghurt if you’re having a white Christmas.

Serve straight away!

The iced mangoes should be soft enough by now but still icy!

My Thoughts

The best part of this Christmas dessert is, by the time your little guests make their way to the bottom of the cup, the iced mango would’ve melted with some ice flakes blended with the chocolate pudding on top! Yum!
