Pretzel Snowflakes

Pretzel Snowflakes

Ingredients

  • Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks (12 per snowflake)
  • White Candy Melts
  • Cake Mate Easy Squeeze frosting, white
  • Cake Mate cupcake gems – Perfect Pearls
  • Cake Mate Sanding sugar, silver and/or white

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper; set aside.

  2. Prepare each snowflakes by creating a star with 6 Pretzel Sticks on the lined baking sheet.

  3. Break off 12 equal lengths of Pretzel Sticks. Each piece should be app. ½” – ¾” in length. Double check that these pieces, when in position (use photo as guide), can fit between each of the Pretzel Sticks that made the star.

  4. When you have all your Snowflakes designs ready, melt the white candy melts in a small sandwich bag, following package directions. Snip off a small corner of the sandwich bag containing the melted candy melts and “glue” the center of the Pretzel “star” so that the 6 Pretzel Sticks adhere to one another.

  5. Using just a drop of the melted candy melts, adhere each of the small Pretzel Stick pieces to each side of the star arms. Let set.

  6. Once set, spread a little of the white Easy Squeeze on each portion of the snowflake. For a smoother effect, lightly dip a small artists brush in warm water and “paint” over the frosting. While the frosting is wet, place in the Perfect Pearls of your own design and sprinkle with Sanding Sugar.
