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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the time to create This was a great project to do with my kids! They loved it and we had an assembly line of rolling, dipping, and decorating. A couple of tips: I refrigerated the dough balls before dipping in the almond bark. I'd also recommend. Heating the bark in stages, as the ones that were dipped in the warmest, freshest bark were the smoothest. (The coating became lumpy as it cooled) Last, the unwrapped Reece's "minis" were a much better sized hat than the miniatures. Not only were these guys adorable, they're delicious. I've been swatting everyone away trying to save them for neighbor treats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and delicious! These do take some time, but they are worth it! The hardest part was coating the cake balls with the vanilla coating. Make sure to tap off all the excess coating that you can, and it helped to use half a toothpick to stack the cake balls. It was so fun to decorate their cute faces! Everyone loved them at my cookie exchange, and my family loved them too! When I finally let myself eat one (why was I surprised?), they were DELICIOUS! I love Absolutely Almond Pound Cake, and it was awesome with the coconut pecan frosting!
