Snackshot Of The Day: Gingerbread Men

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of gingerbread men from contributor Emily Jacobs. She says, "To decorate these little guys, be creative and visit the candy shop to get a variety of different candies. I used mini M&M's, chocolate sprinkles, gum drops, mini chocolate chips, raisins, Red Hots, and licorice. For the icing, use store-bought or mix confectioner's sugar with a little water until it becomes a piping consistency."
