  • 1

    Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas mark 5.

  • 2

    Beat the light buttery spread and the sugar together until smooth.

  • 3

    Stir in the flour and use your clean hands to get a smooth paste.

  • 4

    Gently roll out until the paste is 1cm/ ½in thick.

  • 5

    Cut into rounds using a 2.5 inch cutter, and place onto a greased baking tray.

  • 6

    Prick lightly with a fork and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.

  • 7

    Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown.

  • 8

    Set aside to cool on a wire rack.

  • 9

    Whilst your biscuits are cooling, pour your Milkybar® Buttons into a bowl.

  • 10

    Fill a small saucepan about a quarter full with hot water, then sit the bowl on top so it rests on the rim of the pan, not touching the water.

  • 11

    Keeping the water at a temperature barely simmering, stir the chocolate occasionally until melted. Now remove the bowl from the pan.

  • 12

    Carefully dip the top of the cooled biscuits into the melted chocolate.

  • 13

    Once the chocolate has dried, using the black writing icing carefully draw 2 small circles for eyes and one circle to hold the snowman's nose in place.

  • 14

    Add one Orange Smartie® to the centre of the Snowman’s face and wait to set.
