Sledding Snowman S'mores!

Living in Colorado, I do enjoy the snow.  From the inside.  Like, I love to look at it through the window...but play in the snow?  Not so much, I don't like to be cold.  But I do like to play in fake snow!  While shopping for Christmas treasures on clearance I found Snowman Peeps and Candy Canes... that's when I decided to make Sledding Snowman S'mores!

 I'm not sure where these little Snowmen Peeps went sledding, although I did hear they were in Aspen, along with all the other celebrity Peeps.  Now you can go sledding too!
Sky View~
Find a package of Snowman Peeps - or any other Peep you think would enjoy sledding~
I found my snowman peeps on clearance at Joann Fabrics. 
You may even have Candy Canes on hand~
I picked them up at the Dollar Store for 25 cents.
I always have chocolate on my pantry shelf~
And Graham Crackers~
Now lets get started~
Cut the Graham Crackers in half.  Use a knife instead of breaking so you get a clean cut.
Also, cut the Hershey bars in half~
Glue the chocolate to the graham with melted chocolate as glue~
Just enough to hold it together to make the sandwich~
Unwrap your candy canes~
Add melted chocolate to one candy cane~
Place one graham/chocolate sandwich on the chocolate~
Use another candy cane (without any chocolate) to prop up the other side.  Then add chocolate to a candy cane and place on the other side~
Now your sled is ready for the snowman peep.
My peeps were a little lop sided, so I trimmed the bottom off with a knife~
Add a little more melted chocolate to the bottom of the snowman~
Set him on the sled~
Now they're ready to hit the slopes.
Yep, they went to Aspen!
Lots of fresh powder and what fun they had!  After coming off the slopes cold and a bit wet, I made something special to warm them up.
