Genius idea!!! I thought it's going to take a bit of effort to put the snowman together, but to my surprise, it's actually pretty easy. Loved results! I used spicy beef jerky for this recipe. The snowman was delicious!!
Great for a winter party. Relatively easy to make and gives you a chance to be a little creative. The only issue is, the snowman looks so good, people don't want to eat him! But he is tasty!
