Holiday treats are so much fun to make! In our house, we like to take ordinary snack items and transform them into cute, festive goodies. Take this Pretzel Snowman Treat, for example!
Aren’t they cute? We are considering making some for our big Christmas dinner at the first of December. I am sure everyone would love these delicious and adorable treats! They are especially a hit with the kids!
Pretzel Snowman Treat
- Pretzel Rings
- Candy Melts
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Candy Corn
- Fruit Leather
Melt Candy Melts according to package directions and add to a small squeeze bottle.
Line a sheet pan with wax or parchment paper. Place a dime sized round of candy melt down on the paper.
Lay two pretzel rings flat touching together on top of the dime sized spot. Fill in each ring with Candy Melt plus a small amount along the seam of where the pretzels are touching to hold them together for your pretzel snowman treat.
Add 2 Mini Chocolate chips for eyes in the top ring and 3 in the bottom ring for buttons.
Cut the orange part off of the candy corn, and cut that into nose size pieces, place on the top ring for the nose.
Finish the remaining snowmen and let the melts set.
In a small bowl melt a few tablespoons of chocolate chips and add to a small squeeze bottle. (I washed out the bottle I just used and then added a couple of spoonful of the chocolate straight into the nozzle top of the bottle). Carefully squeeze out a small amount of chocolate and draw the smiles on the faces. Allow to set.
Cut the fruit leather into ¼ strips. Wrap around the middle of the two pretzels to make the scarf. Be careful when moving after adding the scarf, the fruit leather can stick and decapitation is much easier than you would think.
Serve or store your pretzel snowman treat in an airtight container.
