Snowman Pretzels Recipe

Well, the holidays are over, but there is still a LOT of winter left – at least for those of us in a cold climate! Tomorrow we are heading to 11 degrees below zero! That means a lot of winter time inside the house! A fun way to pass the time is by making winter-themed treats, so we will have a few new ones to share over the next week or so.

Today we have this super cute Snowman Pretzels Recipe. They are fun to make using pretzels and melting chocolate and decorated with colorful fruit roll-ups scarves and Starburst noses. I like that these have a little bit of extra character because each is slightly different. If you wanted to get really crazy you could even use other small round candies to add colorful buttons or colored eyes – maybe not your “traditional” snowman, but fun, bright and colorful!

Cut Starburst into 3 rectangular strips (1/4″ x 3/4″)
Cut each of those in half, creating 6 – 1/4″ x 3/8″ rectangles.
Now cut each of those diagonally creating 12 triangles for noses.
Unroll Fruit Rollup and cut into 1/2″ strips to use as scarves.

Place 2 rings so they are just touching at that spot as pictured.
Pipe additional candy on top to better secure them.
Fill the inside of each ring with white candy.

If you are using mini chocolate chips for eyes mouth and buttons you need to place them at this time before candy sets. If you are using melting chips you will pipe these on after the white sets.

    Those are so cute! My grandchildren would love them. Who am I kidding, I’d love them too. They are pretzels that also have white chocolate as an ingredient, and I love white chocolate with pretzels.
