Prepare Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix according to package directions. Cool completely.
Crumble cake into a large mixing bowl. Mix with frosting until well combined. Form into 24 (2-inch) balls and 24 (1-inch) balls).
Melt almond bark in a large bowl in the microwave according to package direction. Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper. Place several 2-inch balls into melted almond bark; using two forks, carefully remove balls, one at a time, and place on waxed paper. Repeat with several 1-inch balls and place on top of large balls. Repeat with remaining cake balls.
Place baking sheet in the refrigerator for 3-5 minutes or just until almond bark is tacky but not firm. Remove from refrigerator. Place peanut butter cups, upside down, on snowmen to form hats. Return pan to refrigerator. Refrigerate until firm.
To decorate, carefully pull the licorice apart into single strands. Tie each strand around the next of each snowman to form scarves. Decorate as desired with black gel and orange frosting to form eyes, nose, mouth and buttons. Store in refrigerator. Makes 24 snowmen.
