Snowman Pretzels For Christmas
I am so excited for Christmas 2016 and can’t wait to make lots of treats for our up and coming Christmas party. Here is one idea which I know will be a big hit this year. It was created by a friend for the blog and I think it is a brilliant and fun food idea for the kids.
Makes 24 SNowman
1 bag of mini pretzels sticks
1 8 oz bag of ghiradelli white chocolate melting wafers
1 8oz bag of ghiradelli milk chocolate melting wafers
1 package of Wilton candy cane icing transfers
1 tube of black cookie icing
1 tube of orange cookie icing
1 cookie sheet fitted with parchment paper
Using a double boiler, melt the white chocolate wafers
While the chocolate is melting group together 7 pretzel sticks for each SNowman
Once the white chocolate is melted, dip 6 pretzel sticks 3/4 of the way into the white chocolate
Place them onto the cookie sheet next to each other.
Once all 6 have been dipped, repeat steps with the remaining pretzel groups.
Place tray into the freezer for 30 minutes.
While pretzels are in the freezer melt the milk chocolate
Once the 30 minutes is up, pull tray out of the freezer
Carefully pick up SNowman face and dip the 1/4 part of the pretzel into the milk chocolate
Place back onto cookie sheet and repeat steps with remaining snowman faces
Take the 7th pretzel and dip it fully into the chocolate
Using a fork, pick up the pretzel and lightly tap the side of the pot to shake the excess chocolate off.
Place the fully dipped pretzel stick where the milk chocolate and white chocolate meet on the Snowman. This will act as the base of the top hat
Carefully peel off the icing transfer and place on the top left corner
Using the black icing, pipe eyes and his mouth
Using the orange icing, pipe on the nose
Let sit in the fridge for 1 hour before enjoying.
