     1/4 c  Hot water

      Heat oven to 375~. Mix gingerbread mix, hot water, flour and margarine

   Roll remaining dough into 9-1/2 circle, 1/4 thick. Cut 4 circle out of

   edges are firm. Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet.
       Heat candy coating over low heat until melted. For each Santa, dip one
   end of peanut butter cookie into coating to resemble Santa’s beard. Let dry
   on cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. When coating is dry, dip other end
   into coating (leaving center of cookie plain for face). Immediately
   sprinkle red sugar over wet coating, leaving 1/4 of coating mear cookie
   center plain to resemble the trim of the hat. Cut mini marshmallows into
   fourths. Place a marshmallow fourth on the side of the hat to resemble a
   pom-pom. Attach 2 chocolate chips to cookie, using coating, for the eyes.

   remaining candies to decorate holly leaves. Attach Santas and holly leaves
