Step 1: Ingredients
(makes 1 snowman) x however many you want to make
3 medium marshmallows

Step 2: Glue Marshmallows Together With Chocolate
Melt the 1/3 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for about two minutes on low setting, taking out every thirty seconds to stir.
Prepare a plate with wax/parchment paper, and set the three marshmallows on it.
Glue each marshmallow to the other with a dab of chocolate in the middle. Set to cool on plate, best in fridge.
Step 3: Skewer and 'Paint'
Skewer the three marshmallows with the skewer (you can snap/cut it in half if it is too long).
Lay the resulting skewered snowman on plate and use a toothpick to dab on the eyes, mouth and buttons.
Step 4: Final Additions
Add the piece of orange candy to the face as a nose by pressing it firmly into the marshmallow.
smear some of the melted chocolate onto the bottom of the Hershey's kiss and place it on top as a final touch.
Step 5: Done!
