  4. Place snowman decorations onto the chocolate while warm to create the appearance of a melted snowman. Use chocolate covered caramel candies for hats, sweets eyes, any colour mini chocolate covered candies for buttons, orange hundreds and thousands for noses and pretzel sticks for arms. Helpful hint: Work quickly, so the chocolate doesn’t harden before you’ve placed all the toppings.

  6. (This step requires adult supervision.) Using a butter knife, cut the bark into individual pieces. To keep the appearance of the entire snowman, try to cut pieces where all the toppings are together. However, don’t worry if the bark breaks unevenly!
