Melting Snowman Cookies


Meet my cute little snowman cookie friends!

If you're still needing to bake some holiday treats, these cookies are sure to be a huge hit! I have two cookie exchange parties this week & I'm pretty sure these guys will bring smiles to a few faces!

They are super easy to make. What you'll need:
Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix.
Royal Icing
Decorative icing
Sprinkles


1. Bake the cookies according to directions.

2. Top with royal icing. I had the frosting to dribble down the cookie for a watery, puddle effect.

3. Take a couple of marshmallows & pop them into the microwave for 20 seconds (I suggest spraying your fingers with a touch of cooking spray.) Microwaving gives them a wonky shape.

4. Using decorative icing & sprinkles, add final features (arms, face, etc.)

My lovely little assistant!

The little ones love to help make the cookies but don't be surprised if they eat more than they make :)


Happy Holidays!

  1. Brandy, has it been a year that I have been following you or longer? Wow! Thank you for reminding me of the Melting Snowman. It must have been this time last year that my granddaughter and I made these after visiting your blog. Remember blog post "JUst Melting Snowman" on my blog. Your little helper has grown so much in a year and just as beautiful as she was then! Thank you Brandy for always inspiring me to share things with my granddaughter and thank you for your blog and also for following me.
    Happy Holidays!
