Blue Bunny® Vanilla Ice Cream Snowman
Ingredients
1 cup flaked coconut or 6 ounces vanilla almond bark, finely chopped
2 cups Blue Bunny® Premium Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar
2 chocolate cookie wafers
2 chocolate-covered cherries
Candies for snowman's facial features, arms, etc.

Directions
Place coconut or almond bark on a large plate. Using an ice cream scoop, form four balls of ice cream; roll in coconut or almond bark. Place ice cream balls in freezer for at least 1 hour to set.
Mix confectioners' sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of water to form a smooth paste. Apply to bottom of each chocolate-covered cherry. Press onto center of each chocolate wafer to make the snowmen's hats.
Remove ice cream balls (snowmen) from freezer. Spread a small amount of confectioners' sugar paste on each snowman's head, then press hats onto their heads. Decorate snowmen with candies to form features. Serve immediately or return to freezer for later use.
