Snowman Snacks

Last year we made a couple of these snowman containers:

I had collected a few of the these Gerber containers:

I ripped off the plastic label, put a piece of black felt on the top and secured it with a black rubberband and then cut it to look like a circle.  Then we drew on the eyes, nose, mouth and buttons and finished it off with a plaid piece of fleece for a scarf.  I think they turned out pretty cute.  Here is what we filled them with:

Oyster Crackers
2 lbs oyster crackers
1 pkg Original Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp dill weed
1 cup Wesson vegetable oil

Put the first 5 ingredients in a glass bowl.  Heat the oil in the microwave.  (You want it to be hot, but not boiling.)  Pour the oil over the other ingredients and mix well.  Cover tightly and let set for 24 hours.

Here is another recipes you could use:

Seasoned Pretzels
2 lbs pretzels
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1 pkg Original Hidden Valley Ranch dressing
1 tsp cayenne pepper powder (You may want to use more or less depending on how hot you want your pretzels.)

Put all the ingredients in a flat bottom pan or bowl and mix together.  Cover and let set for 24 hours.  (I used a bowl with a lid so that I could shake it to mix the ingredients.)
