Yummy Winter Treats: Marshmallow Snowmen and Chocolate Peppermint Oreos & Pretzels

For my daughter's Girl Scout holiday party I decided to make the girls some different treats instead of the usual cookies or brownies.  Since they were asked to bring an assortment of treats I decided to make marshmallow snowmen, chocolate peppermint Oreos and chocolate dipped peppermint pretzels.  All of these were a huge hit with the girls.
Marshmallow Snowmen
  • Lollipop or popsicle sticks
  • Large Marshmallows
  • White chocolate, Brown chocolate, orange chocolate (for melting)
  • Oreo cookies (regular size)
  • Mini-Oreos
  • Fruit roll-ups or licorice
  • Mini M&Ms or Red Hot Candies
Stick 3 large marshmallows on your lollipop or popsicle stick then completely dip into melted white chocolate. Let chocolate harden.  Use melted brown chocolate to make eyes, mouth and arms of the snowman.  Then use the orange chocolate to make the the nose.  Once that chocolate has hardened use a little bit of the remaining melted chocolate to stick the M&Ms or Red Hots onto the front of the snowman for buttons.  For that had use half of a large Oreo and glue (using melted chocolate) a mini Oreo on top.  Use the melted chocolate to stick the hat onto the Marshmallow.  Once everything had dried tie strip of licorice or fruit roll-up for a scarf and you're done!

Chocolate Peppermint Oreos & Pretzels
Simply melt white chocolate and dip the Oreos and pretzels in the chocolate so they are covered.  Lay the Oreos flat on wax paper to dry.  While the chocolate is still soft sprinkle crushed candy canes over them and let harden.
