Chocolate covered pretzels are my absolute FAVORITE Christmas treat.  Of course they have to be WHITE chocolate covered pretzels.  Regular chocolate just doesn’t cut it.  I had a fun little gift the boys and I were going to make for their friends and the neighbor kids but I couldn’t find all of the supplies I needed in our tiny little town so these are plan B and for a plan B I think they are pretty darn cute!

Snowman Pretzels

Chocolate Covered pretzel Snowmen

Step 1 – Dip pretzel rods into melted white chocolate and hold upside down to let excess chocolate drip off. Put pretzels on wax paper and while chocolate is still wet put on candy for buttons (I used M & Ms), mini-chocolate chips for the eyes and an orange M & M cut in half for the carrot nose.

Step 2 – Let the chocolate harden and place pretzels into something that will help them stand up.  I used mason jars and they worked perfectly.

Step 3 – Add jelly ring candies to the top of pretzel for the hat brim.  Dip the bottom of a gumdrop into white chocolate and press onto the top of the pretzel to become the top of the hat.

Step 4 – Attach scarves by cutting Fruit by the Foot rolls into strips and tying around the snowmen.

Then Enjoy!

I don’t know about you but I’ve decided that their hats look like sombreros, so maybe these fellas are on their way to a winter fiesta!

In that case…Feliz Navidad!

I found the idea for these snowmen in Taste of Home Kid-Approved Cookbook: 300+ Family Tested Fun Foods.  This is one of my favorite cook books for making fun recipes with my kids.
