Frosty the Snowpuddle

Frosty...
what happened??!

A long time ago, I saw these treats on Family Fun. I thought they cute, but needed a little something. So, we re-vamped them and the results made us laugh. Enjoy!Frosty the SnowPuddle Treats
Ingredients:
White Chocolate (we used white candy melts)
Doughnut Holes
Rolo Candies
Milk Chocolate Candy Melts (one for each hat)
Fruit Roll-ups
Orange Mike & Ike Candies (or any orange candy you can shape into a nose)
Mini-Chocolate Chips
Pretzel Pieces (for arms)
Wax Paper

Directions:
Get out your ingredients. Cut Fruit Roll-up into strips and cut snips on the ends as "fringe". These are your scarves. Here's everything you'll need to accessorize one snowman (plus a couple broken pretzels for arms).
Melt white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals, stirring after each. When melted, spread a little "puddle" on your wax paper. Dip a doughnut hole in the melted chocolate and place on your puddle. Accessorize your snowman with chocolate chip eyes, a scarf, a hat made with the candy melt and rolo, nose, and pretzel arms. Let set completely (about 15 minutes) then serve and enjoy!
Little H did a great job and loved hers. It was cracking her up.
Good job, Little H! And lastly, I'd like to share a Christmas Miracle! As you know, we're giving away a commercial-grade KitchenAid mixer. I've been dying to have one and heard about a few other blogs giving them away so I entered them all. There was a recipe contest, an essay contest, and all kinds of other things. Well, guess what? I won one today over at Amanda's Cookin'! And, it was random! So much for my recipes and essays.:) Thank you so much, we'll be making all kinds of wonderful things this coming year with our new mixer!

Also, tomorrow at 1:00 CST I'll be a guest on the Toginet Radio Show Mommy on a Shoestring. You can listen LIVE or can go to the show's page and download the podcast that is usually up a few hours after the show ends. I can't wait, we're going to have some fun!
