7. Remove baking pans from refrigerator and press cookie cutter into mix. Form shapes throughout entire pans. Use left over mix to press to top off filled cookie cutter. Stuff as much mix into the cookie cutter for each rice crispy treat. The fuller the treat, the easier it will be
to cover in chocolate and the more uniform each treat will be. Set treats on tray and keep aside for the time being.

10. Since this recipe only calls for a small amount of rice crispy treats we will use the microwave to melt the chocolate. Only work with about 8-10 chips at a time. Melt at 40% power and set the timer to 50 seconds. Pull out of microwave and stir until completely liquid. If it needs a little more melting, set at 40% power and timer to about 15 to 20 seconds.

11. Spread chocolate onto each treat with spatula, sides and tops. Repeat melting process until all treats are covered. After finished set in fridge again for another 15-20 minutes. Then place treats in fridge to set for about 20 minutes.

Now it's time to melt the chocolate to paint the details on the treats.

12. Melt about 6-8 colored white chocolate chips or wafers of your choice in small microwaveable bowls.

13. Remove treats from fridge and with candy paint brush create details on each snowman like scarves and hats. Do one item at a time, moving from one snowman to the next. Repeat this step using different colors until all snowmen are completed.

If you don't have black colored wafers for the eyes and coal you will need black oil-based candy food coloring.
