If you are looking for a hot beverage that is winter-appropriate, but you are over traditional Christmas flavors, this snowman recipe will warm you inside out. From I Am a Food Blog, the homemade snowman affogato is also the perfect treat for people who like eating ice cream year round.

Affogato, which is an Italian treat made by pouring espresso over ice cream, is winterfied by adding an adorable snowman face. The snowman recipe consists of scooped balls of vanilla ice cream and melted chocolate and orange candy melts for a face. After freezing overnight, the snowy faces can be popped into a cup of coffee (or hot chocolate for a non-caffeinated version). Pretzel arms are optional.

This coffee drink demonstrates how seasonal beverages can be enjoyed after the holiday season.
