All of the melted snowman almond bark candies came out looking cute and delicious! So play with your food this holiday season, and create a melted snowman of your own.
To make melted snowman bark you need:
- almond bark cubes
- rolo candy: or reese's peanut butter cups
- twizzler pull n peel candy
- pretzel sticks
- cinnamon imperials
- blue sprinkles: optional for if you'd like to create a pool of water at the bottom of the snowman
Making melted snowman bark is incredibly simple! It takes only 15 minutes before you have a tasty Christmas treat ready to be eaten.
Step 1: Prepare Ingredients
Melt the almond bark cubes according to the package instructions. Usually this is 90 seconds at first. Then stir and heat for another 15-30 seconds until all of the bark is melted.
While the bark is melting, prepare the other candy decorations so everything is ready to go. Break the pretzel sticks in half and unwrap the rolos. If making scarves, break the twizzlers into three pieces and peel them into strips of 2 or 3.
Step 2: Make Melted Snowmen
Line the counter or a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a spoon, scoop out the melted bark and ladle a big dollop onto the paper, wiggling the spoon to create a messy snowman shape.
Make only 1 or 2 at a time, so they do not harden before you decorate them.
Step 3: Decorate
Add the rolo for the hat. Place the pretzels into the arm positions, and use 2 or 3 cinnamon imperials to make candy buttons. Then twist a piece of twizzler to make a scarf shape and press it into the warm bark.
Add blue sprinkles at the bottom if wanting to create a water effect.
*Make sure to scatter the body parts and clothing near where they would be on a real snowman, but not exactly in the "right" spots!
Step 4: Let Harden
When all the snowmen are done, let them harden on the counter at room temperature for about 10 minutes before transferring off the parchment paper. Speed it up by putting them into the fridge.
Whether you're bringing these to a Christmas gathering, enjoying them at home with your family, or leaving them for Santa, they are sure to be a fun treat for everyone to eat!
