SNOWY CHOCOLATE PINECONES

WHAT YOU NEED

3 cups Chex Chocolate cereal or comparable (like Chocolate Fiber One cereal)
6 pretzel sticks
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar

HOW-TO

Step 1
Mix the peanut butter, Nutella, butter, and powdered sugar in a bowl.

Step 2
Take a pretzel stick and mold some of the peanut butter mixture around it, forming a slight cone shape.

Step 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.

Step 4
Cut several cereal pieces into triangles and add those to the top (most pinecone scales get smaller toward the end.)

Step 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.

Step 6
For a “snowy” effect, dust the pinecone with powdered sugar.

So now for the big question…. How do you eat a pinecone? Simple! Pluck it apart, piece-by-delicious-piece.
