Expert Tips

Use red cinnamon candies or pieces of fruit roll snacks instead of chocolate chips for the snowmen's mouths.

To keep melted candy coating liquid, place the bowl of candy coating in a larger bowl containing hot water.

Be creative! With a variety of candies and pretzels you can make sure no two snowmen look alike.
