 Snowman Treats
My daughter Hannah, 4, and I came up with this recipe on Christmas Eve when she wanted to make treats for Santa. Building a snowman is lots of fun, but coating one in candy is even cooler!
17 ServingsPrep: 20 min. + standing

Ingredients

  • 9 pieces candy corn
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 34 round butter-flavored crackers
  • 12 ounces white candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 34 miniature chocolate chips
  • 34 milk chocolate M&M's
  • Licorice pieces or assorted colors of decorating gel

Directions

  • Remove yellow ends from candy corn. Cut each candy in half
  • lengthwise; set aside.
  • Spread peanut butter over half of the crackers; top with remaining
  • crackers to make sandwiches.
  • In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip sandwiches
  • in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper.
  • Immediately position chocolate chips for eyes and mouths and add a
  • reserved candy corn half for nose. For earmuffs, place an M&M on
  • either side of face, connected with a piece of licorice or a strip
  • of decorating gel. Let stand for 30 minutes or until set. Yield: 17
