Who doesn’t love a fun snowman dessert!
These snowman truffles are made up of some of my favorite chocolate truffles! They are easy and creamy and oh so delicious!
Is it just me or do all the snowmen look like they are flexing their arms haha! I guess I should have positioned them a little different!
How to make the snowman truffles:
- Make a batch of the easy creamy chocolate truffles BUT vary the size of the truffles so you have some that are slightly bigger for the base of the snowman and don’t roll them in powdered sugar
- Melt your white candy melts adding a little coconut oil to thin the chocolate out if needed
- Dip the truffles in the white candy melts and let dry
- While drying affix nose, mouth and eyes to 1/3 of the truffles
- Make the hats for the snowmen by adding a little melted chocolate in between the base and the top to glue them together
- To assemble stick a tooth pick into the base truffle and layer the other two truffles on top
- Press pretzels into the sides as arms, affix the hat, and buttons with a small bit of melted white chocolate
- Using a rope candy wrap a scarf around the snowman
When I first made the chocolate truffles, I knew making them into these snowman would be perfect! The truffles make several dozen, however as they snowmen they make 14 (3 truffles per snowman!).
These little snowmen take a little time and a little work but they are so worth it! Tasty and fun, kids and adults alike with love this snowman dessert!
A fun Christmas dessert that everyone will enjoy!
- 1 batch of chocolate truffles- link in instructions
- What candy melts
- 1-2 tbs coconut oil
- 14 Mini Reese cups
- 14 - Oreo thins
- Black round sprinkles
- Orange gummies I used lifesavers
- Red Rope Candy I used Twizzler Twists
1. Make a batch of the easiest chocolate truffles but DO NOT roll them in powdered sugar. Make 1/3 of the truffles slightly larger as the they will be the base of the snowmen.
2. Let the truffles dry completely (several hours so they aren’t sticky)
3. Melt white candy melts either over a double boiler or in the microwave (stirring frequently). If the candy melts are too thick add 1 tbs of refined coconut oil and stir completely. Adding a little more coconut oil, a little at a time until it is thin enough to your liking.
4. Dip the truffles in the white candy melts setting them on a parchment lined baking sheet to dry.
5. As they are drying affix the nose, button mouth, and eyes.* If the white chocolate has dried too fast simply use a little more melted white candy melt as glue. For the nose I sliced an orange lifesaver into the shape of a wedge and then stuck it to the face.
6. Using more melted candy melts glue the mini Reeses and Oreo thins together to make the hat.
7. To assemble stick a toothpick into the center of the base of the snowman. Then push the middle of the snowman over that followed by the head making sure to be careful of the facial features.
8. Carefully press in the pretzel pieces as arms and lastly wrap a string of rope candy around the neck. I peeled the Twizzler twists apart to get a thin enough scarf.
*The order in which you decorate the face of the snowman doesn’t really matter. Either before or after assembling the snowman is just fine.
