♥De-Frosty the Desperate Snowman♥


Click photo to print recipe
This wistful snowman appears to be going the way of winter or possibly a January thaw (a phenomena that happens every year in my neck of the woods).  It will either begin to snow again to give him new life or he'll soon disappear altogether. Made from a puddle of vanilla candy melts he's quick and easy to make and oh, so much fun for little hands to help create! De-Frosty is also adorable made of strawberry melts with just a sprinkling of crushed peppermint for garnish or chocolate melts with a little green colored coconut to mimic the grass peeking through the snow. Use your imagination - I'm sure you will be able to come up with oodles more ideas! 

INGREDIENTS

White candy melts or white chocolate chips (one 14-ounce package makes 16 snowmen)
Mini chocolate chips
Light cocoa candy melts
Rolos Caramel Candy
Candy corn (hope you saved some from Halloween)

DIRECTIONS

For each snowman, you'll need 6 mini chocolate chips, a light cocoa candy melt, and a Rolo. To make the nose, cut the orange section from a candy corn, then slice it in half lengthwise. Roll the piece between your fingers to form a carrot shape.

To assemble your snowman, melt the white candy in a bowl according to the package instructions, then scoop a rounded tablespoon onto a sheet of wax paper. With the back of a spoon, smear the candy into a puddle. Working quickly, stick on the light cocoa candy melt, add a dot of white melted candy, then place the Rolo on top. Finally, add the candy corn nose and mini chocolate chip eyes and mouth.
