*I tried CandiQuik for the first time for this project and really enjoyed the flavor and the ease of melting in the microwave tray that is included in the packaging. I did have to reheat the coating several times while making my Frosty Snowmen Pretzels, and would highly recommend using my electric skillet method to keep the coating warm throughout the process.
Spoon some of the white candy coating into the center of the top pretzel ring.
Note: Fill one or two of the pretzels at a time. You need to add the candy decorations while the candy coating is still wet. Once the coating hardens you wont be able to add the decorations as needed.
Note: I use tweezers to help me easily place these candies in the wet coating. Just make sure you use tweezers that are only used for food.
Fold both ends of the strip of Fruit Roll Ups over to create a scarf. Place your pretzel snowman in the freezer for 2-3 minutes, just until the white candy coating hardens.
Create a nice assortment of Frosty Snowman Pretzels, reheating your candy coating as needed. Then allow the snowmen to warm up to room temperature and use a food coloring marker to add a mouth. Just draw on a curved line of dots under the nose.
If you want, you can add some pretzel stick arms by adding a dot of white candy coating to the end of a piece of pretzel stick and pressing that onto the edge of a pretzel ring. I preferred them without arms, plus they were easier to make and move without the arms, but my exchange student loved the arms. It’s your choice.
You may even opt to just create snowmen heads using the pretzel rings and candy coating. These are so quick and easy and look great in a candy jar.
These sweet little treats can be stored in an airtight container for a few weeks.
