Step 1

2-3 days in advance: Make and decorate cookies. Prepare and roll out dough. Cut 1 snowman (cut off brim and sides of hat), 1 Comfort-Grip tree and 2 Grippy Cutter trees. Bake and cool cookies. Outline with tip 3 and full-strength icing; flow in with thinned icing. For trees, immediately add tip 2 dots of thinned icing for ornaments. Let dry. Attach Lollipop Sticks to backs of cookies using full-strength icing; leave 2 in. extended at bottom to insert into base. Let dry.

And: Make hat. Tint a 1 in. ball of fondant black; roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut out hat using pattern and let dry.

Prepare cereal treat and immediately stir in melted Candy Melts. Press firmly into sprayed pan. Unmold onto foil-wrapped Cake Circle; secure with melted candy. Let cool completely. Prepare and cover treat with 10 oz. blue rolled fondant.
