It’s frigid and snowy outside, which means it’s a perfect time to stay inside and make some wintery sweet treats. These adorable, delicious pinecones are a no-bake, fun activity to do with the kids on a snow day. You might even have the ingredients in your pantry. They make a beautiful display and a yummy snack or dessert, especially with a fresh dusting of snowy powdered sugar.
1/4 cup hazelnut spread
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar (plus more for dusting)
5 pretzel twists
3 cups chocolate Chex cereal
In a mixing bowl, combine the hazelnut spread, peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar until a play dough-like texture is reached. Divide into five equal portions, then wrap a portion around each pretzel twist, forming it into a conical shape. Place on a flat surface and begin sticking cereal pieces into the cone, wrapping around from bottom to top. Sprinkle with powdered sugar to create a snowy look. Serve at room temperature.
