If cereal mixture cools too much it will not stick to candy bell. Cereal mixture remains
very flexible for several hours so can be molded back into shape. Snowman can be stabilized
with toothpicks, but remember to remove before eating. If decorative pieces won't stick to
snowmen they can be "glued" on with melted chocolate or frosting. Decorate "hats" with
decorative candy pieces, if desired.
