Thanks for the neat idea! I put 3 on a stick and when I pulled them out of the oven I rolled them in icing sugar and then dabbed 2 eyes and a mouth on the top ball with melted chocolate and put "buttons" down the other 2 balls to make Snowmen on a stick! My kids loved these...I'm giving them as gifts now!
