Hungry Happenings: Winter themed treats - Frosty Snowman Pretzels

Winter themed treats - Frosty Snowman Pretzels


We hopped on a plane on Christmas eve and headed for southern California and although it was unseasonably cold there during our stay, we were happy to miss the first big snowstorm of the season back home. Upon our return, our exchange student couldn't wait to get outside to build a snowman, and did her best to craft a very small little guy with what was left of the ice crusted snow.


It's still early in the winter season, and she may have another opportunity to build a snowman with freshly fallen snow. I may bundle up and help her, or I may just stay inside my warm kitchen building snowmen of the edible variety instead like these ...

Frosty Snowman Pretzels

You'll Need:

pretzel rings (I found these round pretzels at Aldi)
white confectionery coating (CandiQuik*)
Fruit Roll-Ups
mini chocolate chips
orange candy coated sunflower seeds or other small orange candy

pizza wheel or knife
baking sheet lined with parchment paper
spoon
optional - tweezers
black food coloring marker

*I tried CandiQuik for the first time for this project and really enjoyed the flavor and the ease of melting in the microwave tray that is included in the packaging. I did have to reheat the coating several times while making my Frosty Snowmen Pretzels, and would highly recommend using my electric skillet method to keep the coating warm throughout the process. 

Instructions:

Melt white confectionery coating (Candiquik) according to the package instructions or read my Chocolate Making Tips for detailed melting information.


Cut 1/2 inch wide strips from Fruit Roll-Ups. Lay a strip down on your parchment paper lined baking sheet. Add a dab of melted white candy coating (CandiQuik) to the center of the strip. Press two pretzel rings on top.


To really secure the two pretzel rings, add another dab of candy coating in between and on top of the two pretzel rings.


Spoon some of the white candy coating into the center of the top pretzel ring.

Note: Fill one or two of the pretzels at a time. You need to add the candy decorations while the candy coating is still wet. Once the coating hardens you wont be able to add the decorations as needed.


While the candy coating is wet, add two mini chocolate chip eyes and one orange candy nose.

Note: I use tweezers to help me easily place these candies in the wet coating. Just make sure you use tweezers that are only used for food.


Spoon some white candy coating into the bottom pretzel ring then add three mini chocolate chip buttons.


Fold both ends of the strip of Fruit Roll Ups over to create a scarf. Place your pretzel snowman in the freezer for 2-3 minutes, just until the white candy coating hardens.


Create a nice assortment of Frosty Snowman Pretzels, reheating your candy coating as needed. Then allow the snowmen to warm up to room temperature and use a food coloring marker to add a mouth. Just draw on a curved line of dots under the nose.

If you want, you can add some pretzel stick arms by adding a dot of white candy coating to the end of a piece of pretzel stick and pressing that onto the edge of a pretzel ring. I preferred them without arms, plus they were easier to make and move without the arms, but my exchange student loved the arms. It's your choice.


You may even opt to just create snowmen heads using the pretzel rings and candy coating. These are so quick and easy and look great in a candy jar.


These sweet little treats can be stored in an airtight container for a few weeks.

  14. Love the snowmen. Living in southern Mississippi, snowmen memories are few and far between. I do remember buildgin one with my father when I was maybe 6 or so. It has snowed a few times when my own boys were youg - Mississippi snowmen are, at most, a foot or 2 high....even those take all the snow in your yard!!

    Would love to have the Celebration Crate, stuff in there looks pretty amazing.
    Would love to have enough snow for my kids to make a snow man. We haven't had enough snow to do that in years. What we get now days, doesn't compare to the snow we got when I was growing up.

  18. I have two fun memories of building a Snowman that I will never forget: 1- When I was about 9 years old, my brother and I became very stir crazy in the house during our winter break from school. We had started getting on each other's nerves, as siblings often do, so my mom told us to bundle up and go outside. After having a mini snow ball fight, we decided to build a snowman. We wound up having so much fun building the snowman together, we forgot about how much we had been annoying each other not more than a few hours before. I will never forget that winter, and I don't think my big brother has either.... and 2- More recently, we had a bad enough snow/ice storm that kept my husband and I both home from work. It was hilarious because we attempted to build a snowman, but no matter what we did, it kept falling! So, after taking pictures of him demolishing the little bit we had for fun, we tried again. This time we made a miniature one, no taller than 2 feet on the hood of his Jeep. It was a great experience we shared together and who knows, maybe our next snow storm we can attempt a 4 footer!

  20. Living in sunny CA, we don't get to see snow often. Last month, I took the kids to Big Bear Lake for some snowy fun (it was their first time playing in the snow). We had a blast building a snow man together. :) And I love your edible version just as much.

  30. I LOVE your snowmen... you are so creative!

    I grew up in Texas... so we never had a lot of snow... but boy, when we did it was really special! Now, I live in Washington and enjoy playing in the snow with my boys! A few winters back we had over 20 feet! It was so fun digging tunnels and building "houses", sledding, building snow families, etc! But my favorite part is always the fire, snuggling, and hot cocoa afterward! :)

    1. Oh, my, 20 feet of snow, that is astonishing. The most I've ever encountered was 16 inches, and I thought that was a lot. I agree hot chocolate and snuggling is always nice, even when there isn't that much snow on the ground.

  66. I love making snowmen. The past several years I have changed to making

  89. I have so many great snowman stories but this Christmas , I watched a neighbors grandchild create her first snowman-she is 8 years old and was visiting from California- It began to snow Christmas eve and she made her dad go out determined to have a snowman-with hardly any snow on ground. They stayed out side for over an hour -but it was about 2 1/2 feet tall and was her first -the smile was so worth it for her dad ,whom was seriously frozen and made the rest of us so delighted with her determination.

  96. Since January is still the "cold" season in California, I have to give these a try. I grew up in the south (= no snow) but then moved to Minnesota for college (= a LOT of snow). I remember making my very first snowman. He was about 10" tall and I decided to keep him forever . . . in my frost-free freezer. By the time summer rolled around, I had half a snowman. Tragic LOL

  97. I love the snowmen!!! I have 2 fond memories of building snowmen 1 was when I was a kid with my 2 sisters, my brother and my parents we built a snowman so big my mom and dad had to put up 2 ladders on either side of it to put the head on!! and 2 was the excitement my 2 boys show every year when we make our first snowman of the year, nothing like watching them light up!!!

    1. Hi Brenda, I found that Newman's Own Organic also makes round pretzels. You may be able to find these in your regular grocery store and I'm betting they'll stock them in health food stores too. Let me know if you find them, so I can let others know where you found them. I've seen them at Sam's club on occasion too, but haven't been there in a while, so I don't know if they have any now.

My favorite snowman memory was one of the few very rare occasions I happened to be outside helping the kids build (I typically just watch from indoors). We had three huge snowmen going up, and friends of ours who were house shopping just happened to drive by. I gave them a sales pitch for the neighborhood, using our idyllic snow play as an example!

So the snow banks extra high that year (in the mid to late 70's) We built a snow fort in the side of one those huge mountains of snow. Then built a snowman next to the entrance to "guard" it. I'm not quite sure why but because we lived in the country! Anyway, that night a snow mobiler came racing up our mountain of snow and ended up "dropping in" to our fort! I bet he was a bit surprised...our snowman was unharmed but relieved of his duty as the "guard" though...lol Wish I could've seen that, as it happened!

  135. I grew up in Wisconsin and my memories are building a 3 level snowman, igloos & catching snowflakes on our tongues.

  136. My daughter loves to build a snowman - but you have to have the right kind of snow! It's so depressing to go out in a good snowfall and have the snowman just fall apart as you try to build!

  137. I haven't built a snowman in ages, but a couple weeks ago, the snow was perfect for it. I built a little one (2 feet tall) and put it on our sidewalk, facing the front window. I choose my decorations wrong though! I used raisins for the buttons and green sixlets for his eyes. The green coloring ran and so my snowman ended up with a green face! Oh well it was a lot of fun!

    1. That's funny. I thought you were going to say birds ate the raisins and candy:)

    1. I do remember as a child making a snowman with my sister, my mother gave us some old bottons for the eyes and mouth and we had a carrot for the nose of course, then we put an old scarf around his neck and an old stocking hat on his head. I remember us being so excited about him. Oh! the good old days!!!

  141. This is so adorable! I absolutely love it! I've enjoyed watching my kids building snowmen over the years...but about 3 years ago, my hubby and I built my first one together! :)

  142. Thank you for always sharing your wonderful ideas. You make it all look so simple, too!

    I have memories of making snowmen as a child and with my own children, but we haven't had enough snow to make snowmen in years :(

  143. I always liked the idea of making snowmen, but we really didn't do it very often as kids.
