Blend together all ingredients until fully incorporated and place in the ice cream machine.

Once you have the gelato, pipe into sphere silicon (2 sizes) and place in the blast freezer.

Spray the snowmen with white chocolate spray to create the velvet effect and decorate. We used coffee beans and created a sugarpaste scarf to bring our snowmen to life!
