No need to bundle up to build this snowman—you construct it in the kitchen out of doughnut and candy! The Crafting Traditions cooking staff suggests making these snowmen would be fun at a get-together, especially if you set out the "supplies" so guests can create their own, and also a wonderful wintertime project for the whole family.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"This was so cute. All five of my nieces ages 9 on down to my 2 year old daughter loved this. We used gummy life savers instead of the peppermints (I don't like to give children hard candy). We used extra pretzels stuck in the bottom of the doughnut hole and run through the doughnut centers to keep them from falling over. We also had to use a little icing to hold the candies and choc chips on, pressing was not enough and the kids tended to mash too hard and I had to replace several heads, the icing worked much better. This is a great, simple activity for sleepovers."
