  • 3 cups Chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  • 8 Honey Wheat Pretzel Twists
  • 2/3 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 cup Nutella or Chocolate Spread
  • 4 TBSP Salted Butter Softened
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar


  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine peanut butter, Nutella, butter and vanilla together until smooth.
  • Slowly add I powdered sugar a little at a time, making sure it's well mixed in after each time.
  • Once all of the powered sugar has been added, you should end up with a thick dough consistency.
  • Divide chocolate peanut butter dough into 8 equal parts.
  • Mold one portion completely around one pretzel rod and form a cone shape with the pointy end at the top.
  • The pretzel should be completely covered.
  • Place on the parchment lined baking tray and repeat the process with the remaining dough and pretzels.
  • Starting at the bottom and working your way up in a spiral, press in one cereal square at a time and a slight angle pointing upwards.
  • Once you've gotten to the top, carefully slice a cereal square in half on the diagonal using a serrated knife.
  • These will create your top middle pieces.
  • Dust each pinecone with extra powdered sugar to make the appearance of snow!
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.


*If you are not serving these right away, do not add the extra dusting of powdered sugar over the top until you are just read to serve them.
