The other day, I spied these adorable snowman creations from The Brown Eyed Baker. I am always inspired by her work, so I thought I’d try my hand at them. Once I got started on the project, I realized that, 1. I don’t have a steady hand like she does, and 2. I should have melted the chocolate over a double boiler or a chocolate warmer rather than using the microwave. Also, I realized that I wanted the kids to be participating, so I needed to simplify the technique to be at their level. (Plus it uses less chocolate, which is always a bonus as a parent!) So here’s what you need to do…
- Nutter Butter Cookies
- White Chocolate
- Black frosting with a pinpoint tip (cut the tip of a baggie – the very tip, not a huge hole)
- Orange Tic Tacs
Dip just one side of the Nutter Butter cookie and smooth over the chocolate imperfections if you wish. Add M&M’s as buttons and 1/2 an orange Tic Tac. Let cool in the refrigerator for a few minutes and then remove. Add on the face with the black frosting.
Oh and the hats? Yea. that’s just the power of photo editing, thank you Picnik!
