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.

HOW TO MAKE THIS SNOWMEN TRUFFLES RECIPE

PRO TIP:

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

PRO TIP:

This would be a great project to do as a family, you could give each family member different colors to work with for their snowmen.

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. Let truffles 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 TWO: To make the snowmen, place the Nutter Butters in food processer and pulse until fine biscuit crumbs.

STEP THREE: Pour into the large 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 in the palm of your hands 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 the smaller ball on the bodies. Return to the prepared baking sheet and into the freezer to chill for 20 minutes.

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

STEP TEN: Transfer the regular chocolate to a piping bag or sandwich bag and cut 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 dots for the eyes, mouth, and buttons. Pipe on the eyes, mouth, buttons, and arms.

PRO TIP:

Icing pens would also work to draw the snowman’s face and arms if you have them.

STEP ELEVEN: Melt the orange candy melts and place it in the piping bag. Cut a very small tip off and pipe on the snowman’s carrot nose.

STEP TWELVE: Use the regular chocolate to glue on the hats on top of the snowman. Tie the small piece of licorice around the neck of each snowman as the scarf.

HOW TO SERVE

These Christmas truffles would be adorable on the dessert table at a holiday party. They would also be a fun treat to give as a homemade gift to friends and neighbors this holiday season.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: While these snowmen technically don’t need to be refrigerated and are fine at room temperature if you are giving them as gifts, if you are making them ahead, you should store them in the fridge for up to four days so that none of the chocolate gets too warm.

IN THE FREEZER: These snowmen can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a month.

Enjoy time with your family this holiday season and make these cute truffles together. With a handful of simple ingredients, Nutter Butter cookies, and some imagination, you will have a new tradition to love!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I freeze snowmen truffles?

This perfect treat can be frozen for up to a month. Add wax paper to your container so your snowmen don’t get stuck together.

Can I use a different cookie than Nutter Butters?

These snowmen truffles would also work with original or golden Oreos or another peanut butter sandwich cookie.

Do these snowmen have to be refrigerated?

While they would be fine stored on the counter, keeping them in the fridge will ensure that they don’t get too warm and soft.
