Snowman Hard-Boiled Eggs

Why did the snowman take a dip in boiling water? Because he was made from hard boiled eggs! These adorable snacks are cleverly held together with a stick of dry spaghetti. Or using a toothpick will work also.

Carrot slices form hats, sprigs of parsley shape the arms, and buttons and eyes are black peppercorns (you could also use black sesame seeds). Adding scarves by using a vegetable peeler to make ribbons of zucchini will add the finishing touch!
