How cute is this?!? Wouldn't this make a cute centerpiece for a young child's party incorporating a farm theme?
Here are instructions on how to make this yummy centerpiece:
Set up a different bowl for each desired color. Dilute each drop of food coloring with 1 tablespoon of water for pastels. Add a drop at a time to the bowl to control the shade of your mix.
Apply a thin layer of marshmallow spread to body parts and roll in your candy coating. Attach heads, ears, and snouts with a dab of spread. Let sit for half an hour before handling.Cut jelly beans in half to use as feet, noses and arms. Attach with a dab of marshmallow spread. Use decorating icing for facial details. Store in an airtight container for up to two days.

Here's a summary:
A CIA operative, Roger Ferris, uncovers a lead on a major terrorist leader suspected to be operating out of Jordan. When Ferris devises a plan to infiltrate his network, he must first win the backing of cunning CIA veteran Ed Hoffman and the collegial, but perhaps suspect, head of Jordanian intelligence. Although ostensibly his allies, Ferris questions how far he can really trust these men without putting his entire operation--and his life--on the line
If you have a chance to rent this movie, check it out. It is rated R, so no kids allowed and there is a lot of violence and language, but a very interesting situation, no T & A (which is rare now-a-days) and great acting. I never really got into Russell Crowe's acting, but he does a great job in this role. I actually enjoyed watching his character react to different issues that his counterpart Leo was going through, getting his booty kicked by terrorists on the other line, while coaching at his kid's soccer game and taking his little boy to the bathroom. Even though it was clear he was a very important person, who was dealing with intense situations through Leo, he still contributed to his fatherly duties. Very cute moments. I know, I'm crazy, a rough and tough movie where every other word is a curse word, I find tenderness in the middle of it all. I can't help it, I'm a girl, we love that stuff.
