Melted Snowman Cookies

Pin It
I saw a picture of these the other day on Allrecipes.com 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). To see the original Melted Snowman Cookie, and meet the inventor herself, go check out Meaghan (great name) @ The Decorated Cookie!

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!

Very cute!

Momma McCall said...

This is totally what I want to do for my book club's cookie exchange but couldn't figure out how to make it work for me. I've seen them before but with fondant or gum paste rolled up for the snowmen's heads and I couldn't bring myself to mess with that. This is soooo much better! I am super excited to try it your way now!! Thanks for the idea!!!! Hope I can make mine as cute as yours.

greenbean said...

freaking hilarious!...i love 'em!...

Stacey said...

Yikes! These are just too funny. My boys are going to love these melting snowmen. The best part is that they are a "winter" treat and can be made all the way through the winter. They would make a great stuck inside on a snow day activity.

f for kids. I Simply love it.

Chelsey A said...

Cathy said...

Very cute! I love these!

leisl said...

love these, can't wait to try!!

Radtke Customs said...

Love these. Looking at your pictures I got to thinking that if they were chocolate sugar cookies that it would look more like dirt the snowmen are creating when they melt. Might have to make these for school sometime.

I'm relatively new to the neighborhood and plan to make these as gifts for my neighbors and really "wow" them. Probably setting the bar a little high for next year but oh well - you never get a second chance to make a good impression!

Ginger Gitthens said...

I made these cookies for the cookie exchange this year and they were a hit!! Not one left! When I first reviewed the instructions I thought "the kids could make these". The more I worked on them, I decided I could have easily involved the kids and they would have turned out just fine. The sloppier the better! My kinda decorating :)

Caren with a "C" said...

Love them! I shared on Preserving Home Basics' FB wall. Thanks!
