Use the brown buttercream to create a hat for the top of the snowman’s head. Fill in any gaps with the brown icing.

Use a butter knife to smooth out any harsh lines from the piping bags. Then, add some blue sprinkles to separate the bottom snow on the charcuterie board from the snowman.

Add mini M&Ms for the eyes, orange M&Ms for a carrot nose, and more M&Ms to create a smile and buttons for the snowman.

Use the peel-apart Twizzler to shape and wrap around the snowman’s neck, creating a scarf. Let it drape down the front of the snowman.

Place Oreos on one side of the charcuterie board in a layered fashion. Leave some space in the middle and add white chocolate-covered pretzels to the snowman’s hat.

On the other side, repeat this with shortbread cookies and chocolate chip cookies.
