There's a post on this forum with the complete directions, but I just stuck two marshmallows on the sticks, without leaving any room at the top. I dipped them in melted white candy melt and stuck them in the styrofoam cake dummy to dry. After I had dipped all of them, I stuck them in the freezer for a few minutes. Then, I took them out and did the faces. I just laid them on parchment and made dots with melted candy melts. After I did all the faces, I stuck them back in the styrofoam cake dummy. Then, I started making the hats. I got a sucker stick, stuck it in a marshmallow and dipped in the chocolate candy melts. Then I placed it on parchment and just wiggled it around in a circular motion to make a little chocolate drip down and make the brim. Does that make sense?? Then I took the stick out and did the next one. The chocolate will melt over the hole you left. I stuck the hats in the freezer for about 3 minutes and then attached them to the snowmen with a little bit of melted candy. These are really very easy and sturdy. I thought they would be fragile, but they held up great and packaged easily.
