Introduction: Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Treat

Yes, it's an edible My Hankey. Why? It's a long story. Just... just go with it, OK?

Step 1: Materials

You'll need:
- Baby Ruth candy bars (Snickers, Milky Way, etc. will do in a pinch)
- Pretzel sticks
- Candy eyes
- Red fondant
- White fondant
- Rolling pin (optional)

Step 2: Arms and Face

Break the pretzel sticks down to somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 of their length. Push the broken end into the candy bar at an angle, about 2/3 the way up.

Note: I made the mistake of doing this using a cold candy bar and the chocolate flaked off a bit. Might help to warm it up first.

Put a small blob of white fondant (dampened a bit) where each of the eyes will go.

Push a candy eye onto each blob.

Roll out some white fondant, cut out a triangle, and shape it into a mouth.

Step 3: Cold Weather Gear

Put a blob of white fondant on the end of each pretzel stick and shape into a mitten.

Roll out some red fondant, shape it into a cone and squish it onto the head, bending it to one side.

Roll some white fondant into a "snake" and wrap it around the base of the hat.

Add a blob of white fondant for a pom pom. 

That's it! You're done. Now, just do that a dozen more times and you're all set.
