Melted Snowman Chocolate Bark

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!

Play around with different types of candy and just have fun with it!

How to Make Melted Snowman Chocolate Bark

It couldn’t be easier to make chocolate bark! Just follow these easy steps!

  1. Melt candy discs either in microwave or over a double broiler.
  2. Spread chocolate on a cookie sheet covered in either a silicone baking mat or wax paper.
  3. Press the snowman candy onto the melted chocolate immediately and before it begins to set.
  4. 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.

  1. Hey,
    Thanks so much for this post! I love this creative recipe! This is definitely something I will be trying for the holidays. They could even make great corporate gifts to bring to the office!

  2. Made these adorable snowmen for Christmas and they were an absolute hit! Thank you for the great idea.


    These are so cute. I tried making them the other day and it was a complete fail. Every time I would break the bark I would split all the snowman in half and had to start over. I tried using a hot knife to cut it as well, and that didn’t work. I learned that if you do smaller sections at a time it works better. And the best thing to do is to “score” the melted chocolate with a butter knife before placing in the refrigerator. This also made for better break lines.

    1. So sorry it was a fail – the other thing I would suggest, is try making the bark thinner – mine was pretty thin and it broke in the right spot pretty easy.

  4. My chocolate hardened almost immediately and I wasn’t able to really set in the snowman parts. Any idea what I did wrong? Any tips?

    1. Hi Marylynn – not hard at all. Just use a knife to lean against it and it breaks pretty easily. AND if you break it in the wrong spot – no biggie!! Still tastes great.

  5. Hello! I love this!!! We are totally making with my DIY group! Wondering – How much chocolate did you use for this amount of bark? Help! we would each want to make 5 snowmen ?

    1. So glad you guys are making it!!!! I used a package of white candy melts (I love Candiquick)It made a nice size batch!

  6. What an adorable idea! This would be a great holiday project for children, Im definitely trying this one out during Christmas!
