stage. Remove saucepan from heat; quickly stir in vanilla.

Pour hot syrup mixture over popcorn, tossing to coat well. Set aside about
2 cups popcorn mixture for snowman's hat. Wearing clean rubber gloves (for
handling hot mixture), shape remaining mixture popcorn into 2 balls, one
slightly larger. On large plate, place smaller popcorn ball on top of
larger popcorn ball to form snowman's body. Shape reserved popcorn mixture
into coneshaped hat; place on top of snowman's head.

In a mall bowl, mix confectioner's sugar with 1 1/4 tsp water to form a
thick pasty frosting. Cut snowman's mouth from fruit roll; cut remaining
fruit rolls into strips. Attach strips around neck for scarf and on hat for
decoration. With frosting, attach 1 green gumdrop to snowman' face for
nose, and 2 purple gumdrops for eyes. With frosting, attach remaining green
gumdrops around base and on tip of hat. With frosting, attach raisins to
snowman's body for buttons.
