How To Make Your Own Woodland:

The base of each treat is a chocolate-covered cookie (we used Oreo Fudge Cremes). Use melted chocolate, applied with a toothpick, to attach the various parts. For fine details, such as stripes, use an edible-ink food marker. Mold the caramels and Tootsie Rolls with your hands.
