  1. Add your candy melts to a piping bag and microwave for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Pipe the candy into a large circle onto parchment paper. Repeat. 
  2. Let candy dry and use the cutter to cut out two perfect circles. Set aside until ready to assemble.
  3. Make several small dots and 1/2” round dots with the candy melts for the eye accents.
  4. Make the Nose: On the parchment paper, draw a panda nose with your candy melts. Let dry halfway then add a chocolate chip to the tip.
  5. After candy dries, create the Red Panda face with candy pieces and OREO cookies. Cover and store until ready to assemble the entire snack board.

Step 2: Make the Red Panda Ears

Place 2 Hershey bars together. Use a knife to carve the ear shape, then carefully cut. If pieces break, that’s okay.

Next, heat a plate in the microwave. Remove plate and rub the edges of the chocolate that you want to glue together onto the plate. This melts the chocolate so you can stick the pieces together.

Once the ear is created. Repeat the process to make the second ear.
