In Australia, a hedgehog can mean the animal or the treat. Today, I decided to combine the two of them and make hedgehog hedgehogs!

Below is my rough sketch – originally i was going to do a huge one made out of Hershey’s Kisses as well but decided against it due to the sheer amount of chocolate I would have to consume. Might be cool for one of you guys to make it instead though!

  1. I woke up to this in my inbox this morning and it immediately made me smile! I definitely want to try to make these – I’m sure they won’t be as cute as yours, but at least I’ll have a fun project this weekend! Thank you!
