1) Dip donut holes

Melt white Candy Melts according to package directions. Dip end of cake pop stick in melted white candy and insert into each doughnut hole. Dip doughnut holes in melted white candy. Insert sticks into a craft foam block (or other stand) and chill until firm, about 10 to 15 minutes. Once cool, gently remove sticks.

2) Assemble snowmen

Spread 1/2 teaspoon melted white candy on parchment paper with a spoon. Position one doughnut hole on melted candy. Chill until set, about 3 to 5 minutes. With a dot of melted candy from a decorating bag or decorating bottle, attach a second dipped doughnut hole on top of the first. Chill until firm, about 3 to 5 minutes.

3) Decorate snowmen

With scissors, cut a candy orange slice into a carrot shape and roll in granulated sugar. Shape his hat from grape taffy and darken with a black edible marker (or use ready-made black fondant). Cut sour fruit strips in half lengthwise for your snowman's scarf. Adorbs!

4) Add finishing touches

With your decorating bag or decorating bottle, use a dot of white candy to attach the hat, nose, scarf, candy eyes and black mini gumball buttons to the snowman. If you opted for a fondant hat, attach with melted candy or clear vanilla extract. Chill until set, about 3 to 5 minutes.

5) Display your creations!

Set out your snowman treats on a festive red tray covered in holiday-hued jimmies. Everyone will love your merry little treats!
