This Melted Snowman Chocolate Bark is incredibly easy to make and would be a great activity to do with kids of all ages. The bark is also a nice alternative for Christmas Cookie Swaps!
I totally fell in love with Olaf from Frozen – and the song “In Summer” is one of my favorites. Unfortunately, we all know the reality of an Olaf in the summer!
It doesn’t matter if it is 32 degrees or 80 degrees, either way it is a fun activity and turns into a delicious edible art project!

How to Make Melted Snowman Chocolate Bark
It couldn’t be easier to make chocolate bark! Just follow these easy steps!
- Melt candy discs either in microwave or over a double broiler.
- Spread chocolate on a cookie sheet covered in either a silicone baking mat or wax paper.
- Press the snowman candy onto the melted chocolate immediately and before it begins to set.
- Let set on counter or place in the refrigerator for a few minutes to speed it up!
These are great for a DIY holiday gift or for a Christmas Cookie exchange! Looking for some other cute and creative cookie swap ideas? Check these out!
Couple of tips when making this chocolate bark.
- Be sure to line the baking sheet otherwise the chocolate could stick. It is also much easier to remove it from the pan when you are ready to cut it up.
- To cut the perfect chocolate snowman pieces, I used a very sharp knife to score the chocolate and used the knife to guide the “break”. I would hold the knife where I wanted the break after scoring it and then “broke” the chocolate by pulling it up against the knife.
- To make the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup hat, just cut the bottom portion of the Reese’s from the top portion and then slightly un-align them! See the photo below.

That’s just so adorable! OMG, I love them. Very xmas like too.
Awwwww thanks so much!
I had a blast making the melted snowmen. I was afraid they wouldn’t break where I wanted them to so I did each 1 individually on parchment paper on plates and flat bowls. I discovered less is better & people dont feel guilty about eating a smaller one. I aimed for about 3 inches in diameter. They turned out great and were a hit at our church social. Thanks for this great idea! It’s a keeper.
What is the best way to store these melted snowmen? How long can you store them? Can they be made ahead?
You can for sure store them for a few days. I would put them in an airtight container in a cool place (so nothing melts)
Do you think these freeze well? For our cookie exchange, we typically try to make that a guideline….
I had a difficult time with the top hats; the Reece’s cups kept coming apart. I found that I needed to score it with a serrated knife before trying to make a level cut. Once they were separated, I cut down the “top” part of the hat to make it smaller than the “rim” part to make it look more hat-like.
