Sometimes Princess Unikitty likes to take walks in the forest. A snowy forest. A snowy forest of edible pinecones. And no, not just edible by your dog’s standards.
I wish I could take credit for these precious treats. I really do. I don’t think I’ve ever had people gush over something I made the way they did about these. I brought them into my office (surprise, surprise) and everyone freaked out about them. “THOSE ARE SO GOOD! I thought they were ACTUAL pinecones!”
All credit goes to Handmade Charlotte on these. She’s a freaking genius. These make completely adorable winter tabletop decorations, and completely delicious snacks. You only need six ingredients:
- A square chocolate cereal like Chocolate Fiber One
- Pretzel sticks
- Peanut butter
- Powdered sugar
It takes some time and patience to put them together, but it’s totally worth it for the end result. I placed a few pieces of cereal on the bottom of each to make it easier to lift them off the plate and it seemed to work out pretty well. I think it would have been cute to place them each on small doilies, but unfortunately I didn’t have any on hand.
Give these a shot and be sure to take pictures – I’d love to see how to style them!
