When you are in the mood for snowflakes but the weather isn’t cooperating what do you do? Make your own with chocolate! We spent less than an hour creating our own chocolate covered pretzel snowflakes. These were super fun to make and delicious!
Princess helped take the lead in this activity but Big Red and Lil’ Red were both very excited to make their own pretzel snowflakes as well!
Hard pretzel knots
Semi-Sweet Chocolate for melting
Sprinkles or decorating sugars
Double Boiler or small metal bowl on top of a small pot

Make sure you gather ALL of your supplies and double check that your chocolate isn’t too old, lol. We had two small batches of white chocolate coating that was not good and burnt instead of melting. Don’t try using a microwave either we learned that lesson as well!
We gave each younger child his own tray, parchment paper, applesauce cup of chocolate, applesauce cup of pretzels, and medicine cups of sprinkles.
Both Big Red and Lil’ Red had to make multiple snowflakes so they could get more sprinkles! I think their favorite part was the decorating.
Lil’ Red was trying to snatch the candies Princess had put on her snowflake, lol. I had to put them up until they dried. If you cannot wait to eat them or photograph them then place them in the fridge or freezer.
This post is part of this month’s KBN Kindergarten Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Winter or Snow. We hope that you find lots of fun uses from all of our ideas this month.
