TO MAKE HATS, ADHERE Jingles to pretzel snaps with frosting. Set aside.

Press down lightly. Spread additional frosting on top of each snowman base. Top with remaining 12marshmallows. Dip orange candies and mini morsels into frosting and add noses, eyes and buttons to snowmen. For scarf, tie each piece of licorice loosely around neck of snowman using frosting as glue, if necessary. Let both hats and snowmen bases stand for 20 minutes to set frosting and make snowmen stable.
