"Very cute idea! For those that are confused about the lollipop sticks, that not only keeps the 2 eyeballs together, but prevents them from flipping over due to the weight of the candy. Without the stick, they would fall forward into the hot cocoa."

"VERY cute idea - had enough details that one should be able to make it without issues. Some suggested other candies, but need to remember that some candies' colors may bleed into the marshmallow... which may or may NOT be desirable.

We got a good chuckle out of this great idea!"

"Crows Candies are like black licorice "Dots" candies. Maybe Milk Duds or Jr. Mints could be used as well. Cute idea!"
