Fire and Ice, two distinctly different states of matter in close proximity

Think of it this way you have two major cryogenic fuel (H2 and O2) both fuels are very very very cold. When you catalyze them both they produce H20, and to some extent other exhausts such as possibly CO2 and CO these other exhaust particles are feasibly produced due to combustion of the rocket nozzel materials. The question is exactly why do icicles form on the exhaust nozzels so close to super heated/super cooled plasma?
