Melting Snowman Cookies

I originally saw these cookies on Pinterest and knew I had to do them this winter! What a fantastically fun cookie!
The girls had the best time shaping the dough and then decorating.
I let them each do a couple completely on their own and they created abstract art interpretations of snowmen.
Cookies, frosting, gel icing, chocolate chips, and marshmallows.... does a kid want anything more?
Melting Snowman Cookies
Printable Recipe

1 package Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1 can white frosting
Marshmallows
Frosting tubes or gels
Mini chocolate chips

1. Mix the sugar cookie mix as directed. Take a small handful of dough, about 2 Tbs worth, and push down into a flat cookie shape. Don't worry if it's lumpy or misshapen. That just gives them extra charm. Bake the cookies as directed or until slightly golden.

2. Frost the cookies and allow it to drip over the sides or pool.

3. Spray a plate with cookie spray and place marshmallows on the plate. Set in the microwave for 30 seconds but watch them. Stop the microwave when they've puffed up. Don't worry about letting them double, just let them puff. Spray your fingers with cooking spray. Pluck them off the plate and place one on each cookie.

4. Decorate into snowmen.
