Snowman Treats Recipe

My daughter, Hannah, and I came up with this recipe on Christmas Eve when she wanted to make treats for Santa. Building a real snowman is fun, but we think coating one in candy is even cooler! —Lori Daniels, Beverly, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + standing YIELD:17 servings

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

  • 1. Remove yellow ends from candy corn. Cut each candy in half lengthwise; set aside.
  • 2. Spread peanut butter over half of the crackers; top with remaining crackers to make sandwiches.
  • 3. In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip sandwiches in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper.
  • 4. 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 servings.
