My daughter, Hannah, and I came up with this recipe on Christmas Eve when she wanted to make treats for Santa. Building a real snowman is fun, but we think coating one in candy is even cooler! —Lori Daniels, Beverly, West Virginia

"Great cookie to make with children !!!!!"

"I had a cookie exchange to go to and thought these would be cute to bring. I used Ritz brand crackers and they were great! I couldn't find candy corn this time of year so used orange frosting for the nose and red decorator frosting for the top of the ear muffs. A little messy and time consuming but the results are worth the effort. My final recommendation would be to use almond bark instead of chips for the coating. I have used both and the almond bark is much easier to melt and doesn't get "globby" after being over the double boiler for awhile like the white chocolate chips did. Kids love these!"

"These are just too cute! The taste great too. You could make these all during the winter and not just for the holidays."

"My entire family had a blast making these treats. An added plus they taste great. We will be adding this to our cookie list. (We used small pieces of starburst warmed and shaped into cones for the noses. )"
