Too cold to build a snow people outside? Make them inside instead! These adorable candy-coated pretzel snow people are a fun way to keep the festivities tasty all winter.
Line a large cookie sheet with waxed paper. In a small heavy saucepan cook and stir vanilla coating and shortening over low heat until melted and smooth.
Spoon melted white coating over three-fourths of each pretzel rod, turning pretzel to coat and allowing excess coating to drip off. Sprinkle with sugar. Place coated pretzels on waxed paper. Let stand 30 minutes or until set.
Decorate as snow people using candies, sprinkles, and/or icing for faces and fruit leather for scarves.
Layer coated pretzels between waxed paper in an airtight container. Store at room temperature up to 3 days or in refrigerator up to 1 week.
