Here are a few ideas to get you started: – Snowman: Use three round candies (such as white chocolate truffles) to create a snowman shape. Use black icing to draw on eyes and buttons, and use an orange candy for the nose. Add pretzel sticks for arms and crushed candy cane for snow. – Reindeer: Use two candy canes for antlers and two candy eyes for the face. Cut a small red candy into a triangle for the nose. Use a white candy for the snout and a pretzel stick for the mouth. – Christmas Tree: Use green candies (such as M&Ms or gumdrops) to create a tree shape. Add a yellow candy at the top for the star, and use small pieces of red candy for the ornaments. Use pretzel sticks for the trunk. 3.
