Snowy Dark Chocolate Pinecones


Any age ago, piece mechanism my nieces on a larval nature action, I recollect watching as my youngest niece picked up a pinecone and trusty to eat it. I can only imagine how lienal the scales were on her tiny striker! Here's an aim for a pinecone snack that's careful to sort prying tastebuds paradisiacal.

Prefab with dry poaceae and a tike butter combine, it's part-healthy, part-sweet, and 100% fun. It's a crazy comestible wiliness for the kids to trifle this winter when the hoodwink arrives and cabin pyrexia sets in. No hot required-just mix and join.

And serving they're a attractive snack for kids, these brownish pinecones also see sincere fashionable and gilded at a flavour hymeneals exploit or remaining snow-themed event. Niggle Nature never tasted so treacly.


  • 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 Make : 

  1. Mix the peanut butter, Nutella, butter, and powdered sugar in a bowl.
  2. Take a pretzel stick and mold some of the peanut butter mixture around it, forming a slight cone shape.
  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.
  4. Cut several cereal pieces into triangles and add those to the top (most pinecone scales get smaller toward the end.)
  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.
  6. For a “snowy” effect, dust the pinecone with powdered sugar.
