My boys and I recently visited my sister, brother-in-law and their two small daughters. We celebrated my niece’s 2nd Birthday and of course the theme of her part was the movie “Frozen.” I helped my sister make these adorable “Olaf” marshmallow snacks and they were so cute I have decided to share them with my viewers. They are completely allergen friendly and I chose to use Glutino pretzels (GFree Pretzels fron Aldi’s also work) which are not only gluten-free, but dairy, nut and egg free too. I have found over the years that many of the mainstream pretzel brands are manufactured on either “shared equipment” with peanuts and tree nuts or processed “in the same facility” as peanuts and tree nuts. Additionally, I used the Enjoy Life Chocolate chips as the eyes and buttons. Kraft marshmallows and most generic brands are safe as well.
You could also modify these to look like ghosts for a Halloween party treat!
Ingredients: Prep Time: 45 min
1 bag of Glutino Mini Pretzel Rods (or another allergy-friendly brand)
1 bag of marshmallows
Carrots cut into tiny wedges to be used as the “nose”
Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
Plastic sticks used to assemble the snowmen
I recommend adding each ingredient above to a separate bowl in order to make the assembly on the Olaf’s easier.
- The first step is to add the marshmallows to the plastic sticks;
- Stick 2 pretzels into the middle marshmallow for arms;
- Add the chocolate chips to the top marshmallow for eyes and then a few for buttons;
- Finish off your Olaf by adding the carrot wedge for his nose.
Kids love this party snack and enjoy!
