Melting Snowman Cookies With My Blogging Best Friend

You know what I think? I think these Melting Snowman Cookies will be a hit anytime you make them - whether at home with your kids - or for a winter party. The holidays are over, but snowman fun is not over until spring. Enjoy this fun #recipe!

Let’s start our Monday morning off with something wonderful, shall we?

Yes. I don’t know what I really have to complain about, other than the fact that only three days – and at least 20 work tasks – are what stands in between my Disney vacation and me. Oh, and it was -13 degrees over the weekend. We found our magic, though. We went to IKEA on Saturday, and that’s my happy place. On Sunday, I had my first photo shoot of the new year, but it had been previously scheduled for last Thursday, until the snow hit. So my first photo shoot of the new year was in the first week of January. That’s unheard of! It’s usually March. I wonder if this is a sign of another busy year to come.

And I can’t forget to mention that we saw Coco last night. I rarely cry at movies – it might really be once every five years. Well I full on sobbed during the last ten minutes. What a movie. I still have a Coco hangover. I think I might have this one for awhile. I won’t talk too much about it, but I’d love to hear if you saw it and how it affected you. Des might have been a bit young for it, but Scarlet felt the happy/sad impact and Cassidy said it was amazing. After that, I talked to my blogging best friend – Janine from Confessions of a Mommyholic – because we like to be twins on things, and we are twins on making Melting Snowman Cookies. She made a recipe of them years ago, and it’s the perfect snow day activity. It was my turn too!

I’m not the neatest baker in town, but I made an effort with these. I finally tried them after all these years of wanting to make them, and Janine updated her recipe. So we’re posting on the same day. Be sure to check out her post too!

Melting Snowman Cookies:

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • Large marshmallows
  • Orange and black decorating frosting
  • White Wilton Cookie Icing
  • Mini Chocolate Chips


Directions:

  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.

  • In a separate mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to combine the butter and sugar. Add the egg and milk and mix until completely combined. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix on low until mixed together.

  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

  • Sprinkle a large surface with flour or powdered sugar. Place dough on top and roll flat with a rolling pin. Use a small circle cookie cutter to cut out your cookies.

  • Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. Rotate pan and bake for another 5 minutes.

  • Remove from oven and let cool.

  • On a large marshmallow, use the black decorating frosting to make two eyes and a mouth. Use the orange decorating frosting to make a carrot nose.

  • Use the white Wilton cookie icing to ice the top of the cookies.

  • Before it hardens, add the large marshmallow on top.

  • Use the black decorating frosting to draw two arms below the head.

  • Add 3 mini chocolate chips for buttons.

  1. words cannot express how much that I love that we did this one together today. Seriously still one of my favorite recipes and was so happy to re-visit it with you today. Hugs and here is to staying warm now. Plus, so jealous about your upcoming Disney trip. Even though we only just were there like 2 months ago, I wish I could be there when you were there now, too. You are going to need to share all your Disney adventures with me though still 🙂

  2. Awww I love these! They are super adorable <3 I really want to see that movie. I have heard only wonderful things about it. I tend to cry during movies too, but appreciate the warning. Eeeeeep! I'm jealous of your upcoming trip and hope you have the bestest time ever! I'm longing for a vacation, too… Fingers crossed it happens soon and can't wait to hear about your Disney experience 🙂

    Also I love IKEA too… been too long since I've stepped foot in it!

  3. Oh so funny, I just visited Janine’s site and saw this there – so I’ll share with you what I said in my comment to her… this is SO cute and would pair well with the Frosty the Snowman show! *wink*

    Bloggy buddies are the best – especially when in sync like this. <3

    Wishing you a lovely week ahead.
    xoxo

  4. I loved Coco so much, and I’ve seen it twice in the theater. It’s now moved into second place in my Pixar movie obsession, behind UP which will never be replaced. Coco is such a beautiful movie in every way – saw it the first time with Thomas and even he was tearing up.
