Snowman Truffles

My whole life I have loved to cook. Baking? Not so much. Mostly because I stink at it. I am also not crafty. I like to look at crafts but I don't have the patience to make them. So imagine the day a colleague of mine excitedly said, "Hey Jane, would you make a video of the Snowman Truffles for us?!" My mouth said "yes," because I aim to please. But my mind said "Noooo! What have I done? Snowman Truffles? Dear Lord. That's baking AND crafting at the same time! This is going to be a Pinterest fail for sure."

Well, well, well. Did you see the picture below? I made those. I really made it! It was actually kind of fun, too. But the REAL fun came when everyone saw my cookie tray and said "OMG! Those are so stinkin' cute!" I'm not gonna lie. I was proud of my little baby snowmen! So this weekend, give it a try. You will impress your friends and family. And good news, you get to eat the crooked ones.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter
  • 15 oz. container coconut pecan frosting
  • 24 oz. pkg. vanilla-flavored almond bark
  • 24 mini peanut butter cups, unwrapped
  • 3-4 pieces pull 'n peel twisted red licorice
  • Orange decorator icing
  • Black decorator gel

Directions

Prepare Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix according to package directions. Cool completely. 

Crumble cake into a large mixing bowl. Mix with frosting until well combined. Form into 24 (2-inch) balls and 24 (1-inch) balls). 

Melt almond bark in a large bowl in the microwave according to package direction. Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper. Place several 2-inch balls into melted almond bark; using two forks, carefully remove balls, one at a time, and place on waxed paper. Repeat with several 1-inch balls and place on top of large balls.  Repeat with remaining cake balls. 

Place baking sheet in the refrigerator for 3-5 minutes or just until almond bark is tacky but not firm. Remove from refrigerator. Place peanut butter cups, upside down, on snowmen to form hats. Return pan to refrigerator. Refrigerate until firm. 

To decorate, carefully pull the licorice apart into single strands. Tie each strand around the next of each snowman to form scarves. Decorate as desired with black gel and orange frosting to form eyes, nose, mouth and buttons. Store in refrigerator. Makes 24 snowmen.

Tips and Hints

  • You can use a half toothpick to hold the bodies and heads together before dunking. Just be sure your guests know it's in there before they bite the little guy's head off!
  • Use a dab of frosting or almond bark to hold the hats on.
  • Separate the licorice strands, then toss them with a little bit of flour. That way they aren't so sticky and that makes it easier to tie the scarves.
