Once there was a snowman....

Clearly, he melted. We made these last year, and as they are so cute, we are making it a Spring time tradition.
Last year we used big chocolate melting chips for the brim of the hat, but I couldn't find any this time, so peppermint patties were a perfect substitute (but they usually get thrown away because Trent's the only one who eats them). Mostly, this is a pantry raid with some leftover Easter Candy (we still have lots, so if you need a candy fix....)
Tyson was a little disappointed. He thought we were using doughnut holes to make snowmen. He wanted his snowman to be non-melted and upright so he could decorate it like a Ben 10 alien. I think we'll have to try doughnut hole snowmen next winter. Good idea Tys! Instead, he just gave his melted snowman four pretzel arms and more eyes than necessary.
Kaylee was clearly more interested in eating the candy than decorating with it.
Good bye Winter! Hello Spring!
