Only one more day until my top secret cold and frosty shoot. 🙂 I’ve been working on a few treats around here and wanted to share. Here’s a super easy, inexpensive (and pretty cute I think) treat that you can make in minutes and is sure to be a big hit! 🙂
What you’ll need: (makes 12)
Package of powdered donut holes (12 count)
Package of mini powdered donuts (24 count)
1 bag of mini chocolate chips
1 bag of stick pretzels
1 bag of mini dot sprinkles in assorted colors
a few candy melt pieces (white is best)
To create the snowman, stack two mini donuts on top of each other, then add a donut hole for the head.
For the eyes, I simply pushed the pointy side of 2 mini chocolate chips into the donut hole where I wanted them to be. Same thing with the arms…just two pretzel sticks that are stuck into the middle donut.
For the buttons: heat up your candy melts in the microwave for about 1 minute, until they are melted. Using a toothpick apply a small dot of candy melt to the back of a sprinkle and stick it to the donuts where you would like the buttons to be. Repeat for all the buttons. Let the snowman sit for a few minutes so the candy melts harden and secure your buttons.
All done! 🙂
For this particular project, I wanted something very simple, but it would be fun to add other embellishments too…candy corn noses, fruit leather scarves, be creative and have fun! 🙂
