Melted Snowman Cookies



Prepare cookie mix according to package directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees or temperature indicated on cookie package mix.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Take a small golf ball size piece of dough and flatten to about 1/4″-1/2″ depending on how thick you like your cookies. Remember, they are supposed to be melted snowmen so the more irregular the shapes are, the better the final product will be.

Bake according to package directions.

Remove from oven and let cool on a baking rack.

While cookies are cooling, prepare cookie icing (recipe below)

Once cookies are completely cooled, ice the cookies with an offset spatula, letting some of the icing drip over the edge for that melting effect.

To create the heads for the snowmen spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray and put the marshmallows on it. Cook on high for about 15-20 seconds. Watch the marshmallows carefully.  Spray your hand with the cooking spray so marshmallows won't stick to your fingers and carefully move the marshmallows onto the frosted cookies. Do this quickly so they will adhere to the cookie.

To create details on the cookies, I found it easier to do the arms and faces first, then add the rest.  Use black piping gel for arms, eyes and mouth.

For scarves and buttons use colored cookie icing or a variety of small colored candies. Whatever you wish!
