Grocers Daughter Snowman by DC Hayden

File this photo by DC Hayden under “That’s Just Awesome!” The snowman was created by the chocolatiers of Grocer’s Daughter Chocolate in Empire who were inspired by our wintry weather to create this white chocolate snowman with a cranberry scarf, blueberry eyes and lips and a candied orange nose!

If you want to tell DC and the crew at Grocer’s Daughter what you think, head over to their Facebook!
