We tried a new treat this year for our New Year’s Day lunch with our family – Snowman Pretzels. I found them on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to try them. They were actually quite simple to make and turned out really cute!
First I cut Fruit Roll Ups into thin strips for the scarves. I spread them out on wax paper. Then I melted white chocolate chips in a big Ziplock Baggie in the microwave. I cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. I piped a dot of white chocolate onto the middle of one scarf. Then I pressed 2 round pretzels to the dot – one above and one below the scarf – to glue the snowman head and body together. Next I piped white chocolate into the centers of the pretzels until they were all filled in. I put one more dot of white chocolate at the neck of the snowman and wrapped the scarf around, gluing it with the white chocolate. Finally I added mini chocolate chips for eyes and buttons and an orange Nerd candy for the nose. I found it works best to work quickly and do one complete snowman at a time because the white chocolate hardens fairly quickly.
The snowman pretzels turned out to be a fun and tasty treat perfect for January.
