Melted Snowmen Cookies are a super cute holiday treat and a fun way to get the kids helping in the kitchen! A sugar cookie base topped with homemade frosting, a marshmallow for the snowman, and decorative icing for the buttons, eyes, and nose.
As my kids get older, it is so much fun to watch them become interested in cooking and baking with me. Occasionally I’ll have one of them helping make dinner, but it’s when I’m baking something that they really want to help. Any time they hear the mixer going, they know a treat is being made and they suddenly appear right next to me. Melted Snowman Cookies were a great way for them to help me decorate!
These Melted Snowman Cookies are such a cute holiday treat and definitely a great way to get the kids helping in the kitchen. This time of year especially is so fun to start traditions with your kids, and making and decorating sugar cookies is one of ours.
The base of these snowman cookies is my absolute favorite sugar cookie recipe. I have been making it for years and it never fails me. The flavors of vanilla and almond just can’t be beat in a sugar cookie and these turn out perfectly soft yet sturdy every time.
How to Decorate Melted Snowman Cookies
For the melted snowman decoration, it’s super easy. I am, admittedly, not the best when it comes to decorating cakes, pies, and cookies, but I think these turned out so cute. The only extra ingredients you will need are marshmallows and some decorating icing/gel. The snowman’s head is the marshmallow and you draw on eyes and a nose with black and orange icing.
I found that cutting the marshmallows in half was a good height for the snowmen heads, but my 5 year old liked using the whole marshmallow. A combination is cute, too.
Last, simply pipe on some buttons on the cookie, and that’s it. These are a cute AND delicious holiday treat!
