The holidays are quickly approaching and all I can think about is planning what sweets I will have on my holiday spread this year. I have probably tossed around 20 baked goods, but need to narrow it down to 8. Do I want to make pies, cookies, brownies, and truffles? To be honest? Not really! I much rather buy a bunch from Dancing Deer Baking Company which is local (Boston Based), and call it a day!
See these adorable Melting Snowman Cookies? I like to think of these as a hack since I did not have to bake a thing for them! I used Dancing Deer Baking Co. Molasses Clove Cookies. With a little help from some confectionery sugar, white candy melts, taffy candies, marshmallows, and button eyes I made these adorable kid-friendly cookies that hold up surprisingly well.
The best part? These Melting Snowman Cookies are pretty darn quick to make and the kids can help out! My kids are little dough masters so they loved to help me sculpt these candy arms, carrot noses to make them really stand out. All the ingredients are edible, but the best part was the cookie. Holy deliciousness! Dancing Deer Baking Co. makes quite possibly the BEST Molasses Clove cookies EVER! They are soft, chewy, and have just the right amount of spices.
Melting Snowman Cookies Ingredients:
- 1 package of store-bought cookies
- 1 cup of confectionery sugar
- 2 orange taffies
- 4 small chocolate taffies
- 16 button eyes
- 1 cup of melted white chocolate candies
- Large marshmallows-8
Place your confectionery sugar into a large bowl and dip your cookies in to cover them with “snow”
Place cookies on a baking sheet, and the add a small dollop of white chocolate to the center of each with your spoon
Adhere one marshmallow to the center of each cookie
Using your toothpick, dip it into the remaining white chocolate and use it to adhere the button eyes.
Sculpt the carrot noses and adhere them to the marshmallow with a dab of white chocolate
Lastly, sculpt your chocolate taffy to resemble branch hands. You will need one longer piece, and a much smaller piece to brand off.
Once you are done, sprinkle the cookies with white sugar glitter and you are all set!
Aren’t they adorable?
