  • 2-inch cookie scoop
  • 1-inch cookie scoop
  • 2 piping bags

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

OREOS: You could also make the truffles with OREOS instead of Nutter Butters.

COLORS: Change up the decorating colors for fun customizations.

PRO TIP: If you’re doing this activity as a family, you could give each family member different colors to work with for their snowmen.

COCONUT: Add a little shredded coconut on the serving dish to make it look like they’re sitting in freshly fallen snow.

TOOTHPICKS: If your snowmen are having a hard time standing, you can use a toothpick in the middle to help prop them up.

PRO TIP: You could also make just snowmen faces instead of stacking the bodies together if you would rather.

HOW TO MAKE THIS SNOWMEN TRUFFLES RECIPE

A person holding a plate of food, with Chocolate and Laser

STEP ONE: To assemble the hats, melt the regular chocolate in a double boiler with ½ teaspoon shortening. Then twist the Oreos in half and scrape off the filling. Dip the mini marshmallow in the chocolate and place on top of the Oreo. Allow to chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, then dip the whole hat in the chocolate. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let sit until ready to assemble.

STEP THREE: Pour into the bowl of a stand mixer and add cream cheese. Mix until the dough comes together and forms a ball.

STEP FOUR: Scoop 12, 2-inch balls and roll them into even balls to form the bodies.

STEP FIVE: Scoop 12, 1-inch balls and roll them into even balls to form the heads.

STEP SIX: Place on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

STEP SEVEN: While the snowmen are freezing, add the white melting chocolate to a double boiler with 1 teaspoon of shortening. Stir as it starts to melt. Once melted, keep the water simmering on low so the chocolate doesn’t burn.

PRO TIP: Adding shortening helps the chocolate get smooth and even.

STEP EIGHT: Remove the snowmen from the freezer. Dip the heads in the chocolate and then place them on the bodies. Return to freezer to chill for 20 minutes.

STEP NINE: Remove from the freezer dip the whole snowman in the white chocolate. Place the tray in the refrigerator to allow them to set.

STEP TEN: Transfer the regular chocolate to a piping bag and just the tip off. It needs to be a very small hole so it doesn’t rush out and to allow you to make small eyes, mouth, and buttons. Pipe on the eyes, mouth, buttons, and arms.

STEP ELEVEN: Melt the orange melting chocolate and place it in the piping bag. Cut a very small tip off and pipe on the nose. Use the regular chocolate to glue on the hats. Tie the licorice around the neck as the scarf.
