There are so many wonderful treats that can trigger childhood holiday memories. For us things like Stollen and anise cookies come to mind as a symbol of things we enjoyed growing up at this magical time of year. But we've stumbled across a new item that absolutely represents the season and is also ridiculously delicious plus easy to make.
Nothing says "winter" or the holidays like pine cones and these edible ones are the perfect treat for your holiday and can be made even more festive with a few pomegranate seeds that look just like the real berries.
To start with you will need pretzel sticks, powdered sugar, butter, creamy peanut butter, and Nutella.
To make these pine cones mix one part butter, one part Nutella, two parts creamy peanut butter, and four parts powdered sugar together. Shape the mixture into a cone shape around the pretzel stick, then poke pieces of chocolate Chex or Fiber One cereal into the mixture. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.
