Put the shortbread biscuits into a sealed food bag and crush using a rolling pin.
In a bowl, mix together the biscuit crumbs, butter, vanilla extract, condensed milk and the white chocolate. Add the dark chocolate chunks and stir until well combined.
Roll two tablespoons of the mixture into a smooth ball and place on a tray lined with baking parchment. Next roll two tablespoons of the mixture into a smooth ball and place this on top of the larger ball. Repeat this to make eight snowmen in total. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
To decorate, melt the white chocolate by following the instructions on the packet.
Dip one snowmen into the white chocolate, using a spoon to evenly cover with chocolate. Carefully lift up with a fork allowing all the excess chocolate to drip off. Place back onto the tray. Repeat this step with the remaining snowmen then put into the fridge until the chocolate has hardened.
Fill a small paper piping bag with the melted dark chocolate, snip off the end and pipe dots for the eyes, mouth, buttons and arms.
To make the carrot nose, colour a half teaspoon of fondant icing with a few drops of orange food gel and knead for an even colour. Use a sprinkle of cornflour if the icing becomes sticky. Roll the icing into eight carrot shapes, then attach to the snowmen's face using a dab of the remaining white chocolate.
Colour the icing in a variety of Dr. Oetker food gel colours to make a hat, earmuffs and scarf.
