Melted Snowman Cookies

These Melted Snowman Cookies were the most popular post on my other blog, Crazy Domestic. It has been pinned over 200,000 times!

I saw a picture of these the other day on and thought it was such a cute idea, I had to try it. After googleing it, I found a good tutorial on Stacy’s Sweet Shop. I modified a few things to make it more simple for me (less homemade more store bought).

Here’s what I used:

•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
***it would have been a lot cheaper if I had just made the icing myself, see Stacy’s tutorial for a good recipe)***

Here’s what I did:

•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.

•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.

•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.

•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.

•Then just decorate as you’d like with the Wilton frosting, or your own homemade frosting! I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy the Betty Crocker cookie icing was!

    Hi my name is Jenna and I am a high school journalist. I would like to feature these cookies on my food page in our December issue. I was wondering if you would allow me to use your photo if I give you credit on my page? Thank you!

    I bought the same box mix for this. I thought it was so cute and I found this melting snow man cookie box set on sale. I can’t wait to make them.
