QUICK + EASY SNOWY CHOCOLATE PINECONES RECIPE

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 3 cups Chex Chocolate cereal or comparable (I used Chocolate Fiber One cereal)
  • 6 pretzel sticks (I used the thicker dipping sticks)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

HOW-TO

Step 1
Mix the peanut butter, Nutella, butter, and powdered sugar in a bowl.
Step 2
Take a pretzel stick and mold some of the peanut butter mixture around it, forming a slight cone shape.
Step 3
Holding it steady by using the tip of the pretzel as a handle, start inserting pieces of cereal into the peanut butter mixture in a symmetrical pattern around the stick. Add more cereal pieces, staggering them as you move upward, until you get near the top.
Step 4
Cut several cereal pieces into triangles and add those to the top (most pinecone scales get smaller toward the end.
Step 5
If your pinecone is getting too tall (like mine were), cut off the top of the pretzel and add a dollop of peanut butter mixture to cover it. Insert a few more triangle pieces of cereal into the top of the pinecone.
Step 6
For a “snowy” effect, dust the pinecone with powdered sugar.
