Ingredients

Graham crackers

White royal icing

Red royal icing

Chewy fruit candy squares (recommended: Starbursts)

Sugar wafers

Red fruit sheets (recommended: Fruit Roll-ups)

Miniature bear-shaped cookies (recommended: Teddy Grahams)

Twisted red candy sticks (recommended: Twizzlers)

Candy canes

Shredded coconut

Chocolate Santa, foil wrapped

Directions

  1. Sleigh bottom #1: Coat 1 side of a graham cracker cookie completely with white royal icing. Place 2 candy canes on top, keeping the hooks pointing upward, holding them in place for a few seconds to let set. Sprinkle coconut over the whole cracker and candy canes and set aside to let dry. 
  2. Sleigh bottom #2: Coat 1 side of another graham cracker completely with red royal icing and set aside to dry. 
  3. Presents: Pipe ribbons with white royal icing on fruit candies. Set aside to let dry. 
  4. Santa's seat: Take 2 sugar wafer bars (attached) and completely wrap with a fruit roll-up. Take another pair of wafers and do the same. Place seam side down to keep from them unfolding. Set aside. 
  5. To assemble: Pipe a thin line of white royal icing over the length of the candy canes that are attached to sleigh bottom #1. Place sleigh bottom #2 (red graham cracker) on top of candy canes (red side up)and hold for a few seconds to let set. Make a seat out of the fruit rollup covered sugar wafers by making an "L" shape on top of red cracker. Use 1 as the seat and the other as the back of the seat. 
  6. On 1 side of the seat stack a few candy gifts and on the other side, place the chocolate Santa. Spread out 1 fruit rollup and place a few gifts in the middle and make a pouch, tying the ends of the rollup together with a twizzler, like a beggar's purse. Place gift pouch behind Santa's seat.
