Frosty the Snowpuddle

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
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

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!
