Melted Snowman

29 Nov

We are a few days away from December and although it is just now getting cold, the sun still peeks out somedays. Here in California, we never get the chance to get snow because of the sun and because the temperature rarely drops to below freezing during the day.

I wish one Christmas morning, I would wake up and have snow outside my house, but that is too wishful to wish for that haha. If we were to have snow it would melt pretty quickly, just like the cookies I am about to show you.

These are the cutest cookies that shows what would happen to a snowman if he came to where I lived. He would melt :(.

Although I wish we could have snow without it melting, these cookies are too cute to pass up making and the snowman won’t fully melt by turning into water like a real snowman would!

Just follow the instructions below!

Ingredients:

•1 package Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
•10 large marshmallows
•Betty Crocker Cookie Icing (white and orange)
•Wilton Decorating Icing Tubes in Black, Red, Green, Blue and Pink

Instructions:

1. Mix cookie mix according to directions, or prepare your favorite cut out sugar cookie recipe, then just grab a golf ball sized chunk and squish it down until it’s about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Do not worry about the shape or how lumpy it is, the more misshapen the better! Bake according to recipe directions.

2. Once the cookies are cool, load them up with the cookie icing and spread it around with the back of a spoon, let some dribble over the edge for a “puddle” look.

3. Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray, and place marshmallows on the plate. Set the microwave for 30 seconds, but watch the marshmallows as they cook. Stop the microwave as soon as the marshmallows start to get puffy, do not let them double in size.

4. Spray your fingers with cooking spray or grease them up with shortening, and carefully pull the marshmallows off, by the base, and set them on top of the frosted cookies.

5. Then just decorate as you’d like with the Wilton frosting, or your own homemade frosting!
