Mix a little "Frozen" into your crafty goodies!



Pour melted orange candy melts into a small zip top bag, and snip off one tip. Pipe small triangle shaped orange carrot noses onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Each nose should be about 3/4 inch long.

Pop tray in freezer for about 2 minutes, until the candy noses are set.

Create groupings of 5 pretzels. You want to choose 5 that are close in size so that when you dip them and set them next to each other, you get nice rectangle shaped head for each Olaf.

Drop one pretzel at a time in the melted white chocolate. Use a dipping fork or a kitchen fork to remove the pretzel. Tap the fork on the side of the bowl a few times and allow the excess white chocolate to drip off the pretzel. Set the pretzel on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Dip another pretzel and set it next to the first one, and so on until you have 5 together.

Refrigerate if using pure white chocolate and freeze if using confectionery coating for about 3 minutes until the chocolate hardens. Don't chill for too long, or you will have cracking issues.

Attach two candy eyes and one orange carrot nose to each set of chocolate dipped pretzels.

Pour the semi sweet chocolate into squeeze bottle fitted with a small round tip (I used a pastry tip #3,) you can also use a pastry bag or even just a zip top bag. Pipe three sticks for on top of Olaf's head and set a pretzel grouping on top.

Pipe on a big smile and eyebrows. Then use a food safe paint brush to add Olaf's white teeth.

The chocolate will harden in the pastry tip as you work, so I advise using plastic tips that can be heated in the microwave. I love using Squeezit Bottles. They come with couplers and plastic pastry tips. I just clean out the tip using a toothpick and heat the entire bottle as needed.

Store your Olaf pretzels in an airtight container for up to a month
