SNOWY CHOCOLATE PINE CONES

Yields: 6 servings  |   Time: 25 minutes

 

Ingredients:

3 cups Chocolate Fiber One Cereal (can also use Chex Chocolate Cereal)

6 pretzel rods

½ cup peanut butter

¼ cup Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread

3 tablespoons butter, softened

1 cup powdered sugar (+ ¼ cup for dusting on top)

SNOWY CHOCOLATE PINE CONES

Directions:

  1. Mix the peanut butter, Nutella, butter and powdered sugar in a bowl
  2. Take a pretzel rod and mold some of the mixture around it, forming a slight cone shape
  3. Hold it steady by using the tip of the pretzel as a handle, and start inserting pieces of cereal into the mixture in a symmetrical pattern around the stick. Add more cereal pieces, staggering them as you move upward until you get near the top.
  4. If the pine cone is getting too tall, cut off the top of the pretzel and add more of the mixture to mold over the top so none of the broken pretzel is showing.
  5. Break apart cereal pieces to create smaller scales near the top.
  6. For a “snowy” effect, dust each pine cone with powdered sugar.

I was a bit challenging when putting the check mix in to keep the shape together but it’s nice that the powdered sugar hides all of the imperfections! Easy to make and it has the “wow: factor for creativity!
