So we received our Dec/Jan issue of Family Fun and I knew immediately what I was going to make this year for our friends.......these adorable pretzel snowmen! I tried to find the link to them on their website and couldn't so I will try and explain how I made them............ Here is the list of items needed:
almond bark, vanilla flavored or any white chocolate
mini chocolate chips
fruit leather cut into strips
orange gel icing
fruit rings (I used peach rings found at Albertsons)
Melt your chocolate and dip the rods into it and spoon the chocolate over it about 1/4 way up from the bottom. Put them in a row on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Let them harden just a bit and then put on the mini choc. chips for the eyes and the buttons. Add your little amount of orange gel for the nose and then let them harden completely. Once they are hardened you will make the snowman's hat. You need to put a fruit ring over the top of the pretzel and bring it down just a bit and then take your gum drop, I used large ones cut in half, sticky side down and shape it to look like the top of a hat. Then take a fruit roll up and wrap it around the neck and make it look like a scarf!!! I put them into a cello bag and tied with red ribbon! So far everyone has loved them! My kids loved helping me make these yummy treats too!!
Have fun creating lots of fun gifts this year!!
