Vayigash – 46:6
1 – Start with chocolate covered marshmallow squares, or any large square candy
2 – Melt about 1/2 cup chocolate chips
3 – Use the melted chocolate to stick 2 mini-Nonpareils on the lower half of the chocolate squares
4 – Once they harden, flip them over and repeat on the other side
5 – Take 2 animal cracker cookies of the same size and stick them together using melted chocolate. Place 2 toothpicks parallel between the cookies so that they are held in place by the chocolate. Leave about 1/2 an inch sticking out behind the animal.
6 – Once all of the chocolate has hardened, stick the ends of the toothpick into the side of the chocolate square

Tip: Make sure the animals feet are lined up evenly with the bottom of the square when you connect it, or your cart wont stand.
