Melted Snowman

It has become cold here all of a sudden. I know I shouldn't be surprised since I live in Maine but still it is cold. It is nice to have snow at Christmas time but I am wishing for warmer weather.
Since I have a snowman theme going, I decided to make melted snowman. When I saw this recipe, I figured it would be a fun especially for the kids. They loved it. I had to adapt the recipe since the original called for ingredients that I could not find.
Someone ate my arm!
Desfrosty the Snowman

1 (14 oz) package of white candy melts
60 mini chocolate chips
5 mini oreos
10 Rolo Caramels
4 orange gummy worms
10 pretzel sticks


  1. Prep each snowman: you will need 6 mini chocolate chips, 1 top of the oreo with no cream filling, 1 Rolo Caramel, 1 cut our nose from the gummy worm, 1 pretzel stick cut in half. Have ready since the candy melt will cool fast. 
  2. Microwave the candy melts for one minute at a time in a microwave safe bowl. Stir between each interval and continue microwaving for 30 seconds until melted.
  3. Spoon about 1 Tbsp of the candy melt onto wax paper. Spread into a puddle. 
  4. Place the oreo piece on top. 
  5. Add the mini chocolate chips making two eyes and a mouth.
  6. Place the gummy worm nose in between the eyes.
  7. Add the pretzel sticks for the arms. 
  8. Take a little of the candy melt and dip onto the bottom of the Rolo.
  9. Place the Rolo on top of the Oreo piece.
  10. Let harden before serving.
