Recommended Snowman Pretzel Supplies
Pretzels and chocolate, you just can’t go wrong with this delectable treat, your whole family will thank you. Only a few ingredients to make these adorable snowmen.
Make sure that you always gather the ingredients that you need before getting started on the recipe. Trust me – I make this mistake sometimes so learn from me! The last thing that you want to have to do is run out the door and head to the store in the middle of a recipe. This can create a major problem in the flow.
These dessert treats are easy to make but there are a few tips that you’re going to want to keep in mind.
Tips for Making Pretzel Snowman Dessert
When it comes to making this dessert, you need to know a few simple tips. Above everything else, these have to be stored in an airtight container. If you don’t store them properly, the pretzel will become soft in the air and lose its crunch.
This will happen quickly so make sure that you keep them in a container from the first day. You don’t have to store them in the fridge but you can if you want. I tend to keep them in a container on the counter at room temperature.
Also, let the kids join in on the fun. This is an easy recipe that will have them loving their independence in the kitchen and being able to make their very own recipe. This could be a fun way for them to create a gift idea for someone else and do it all on their own.
These would also be super cute for a class party or a holiday party as well. I love to make these up and have them on the dessert table because they’re always a huge hit. The kids always go for them first but the adults don’t shy away either.
Have fun making these treats – they’re really quite delicious!
Preheat the oven to 170 F degrees.
Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread out 24 pretzels onto the baking sheet.
Place one candy melt in the center of each pretzel and bake in the oven for 2 minutes.
While the candy melt is still warm add one mini peanut butter cup for the snowman's hat in the top corner of the pretzel.
Allow to the candy melt to set for 20 minutes.
Use Wilton icing tip #3 with the black frosting to add two eyes to the candy melt.
Use Wilton icing tip #5 with the orange frosting to add the carrot nose underneath the eyes.
Serve and enjoy!
