This Snowman Bark is such an easy holiday dessert and snack to make. Such a great recipe for kids, holiday parties and you only need a few ingredients to make it.

This melted snowman chocolate bark is incredibly easy and simple dessert to make with kids, adults, anyone! My kids are hooked on this every season and my friends still ask me to make it each and every year. I am pretty sure anything snowman-related is a hit with my kids since it reminds them of Olaf from Frozen ha!

You can easily make this recipe using what you have too. But I run through my go-to ingredients to make them using what I usually have on hand. This is also a recipe that stays in the freezer for a month or two or the fridge for a couple of weeks. So feel free to make it and keep on hand during the holiday and winter season. Except once your kids find them in the house – they’ll want to eat them all day (you have been warned!).

Tip: use any ingredients you have on hand to make these! You can make the snowman bark using so many different toppings.

What ingredients you need to make snowman bark:

  • Dark chocolate – you can also use milk chocolate or semi-sweet if you prefer
  • White chocolate – we use this to make the snowman “white”
  • Small circle cookies – any small cookie works that’s a bit larger then a quarter. This acts as the head of the snow man and makes it easier to create the snowman look
  • Orange sprinkles – yes I hand sorted these like a crazy person but they work so well for the nose
  • M&M’s – I use these copycat ones and I love them as the buttons
  • Red circle sprinkles – I use them for the mouth but you can also use cacao nibs or any small red candy too
  • Mini peanut butter cups – slice them in half to form the hats!
  • Pretzel sticks – I cut them in half and use them to make the arms for the snowman
  • Candy eyes – I had these leftover from all my Halloween recipes!

How to make this melted snowman chocolate bark:

  1. Line a cookie tray or baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper
  2. Melt dark chocolate in microwave or stovetop in a pot and set aside (depending on your chocolate, you may or may not need to add oil to it)
  3. Next melt the white chocolate in microwave or stovetop in a pot and set aside (depending on your chocolate, you may or may not need to add oil to it)
  4. Spread the dark chocolate across the baking sheet and spread out using a spatula
  5. Place the cookies evenly spread across (I did 6 total so 3 on each side)
  6. Add white chocolate on top of the cookie then a bit more underneath it to form the body of the snowman
  7. Next place the “snowman” parts on top of white chocolate and place in fridge to set for at least 1 hour
  8. Carefully cut into pieces and enjoy!

Tips for success:

  • Be sure to line your baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper otherwise it will be hard to get the chocolate off when it hardens!
  • To cut the chocolate snowman pieces, use a sharp knife and cut into squares. It should be obvious where to cut based off the size of your snowman bark and each snowman
  • Allow the bark to full set for at least 1 hour if not longer in the fridge before cutting. I have made the mistake before of cutting before it fully hardens and then it just melts and basically falls apart
  • Feel free to use what you have for snowman toppings – you can get creative! Doesn’t need to be the same thing as what I have but these are the ingredients I usually have on hand
  • I don’t list measurements for toppings because amounts will vary based off how many snowman you make
