Melting Snowmen Cookies

It's February and if you live in a warm climate like Atlanta, you have to make your own snow.  It's not so bad really: no hats, no mittens, no boots, no shoveling and ... homemade snow tastes A LOT better than real snow.  I made these melting snowmen cookies for my daughter's FCA meeting last month.  They were a big hit.

Before you begin, prepare the decorations for the snowmen.

Miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Cut the bottom half off of the peanut butter cup and then cut in two.
This makes the bottom brim of the hat.

Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (in a bag)  Cut in half.

Orange sprinkles for noses

Mini Chocolate Chips for eyes

Start with a batch of sugar cookies.  (Or any cookie of your choice really.)  You can check out my recipe if you like or choose one of your own. 

Melt some white chocolate bark in the microwave.

Spoon melted chocolate over each cookie and spread with the back of the spoon.

Decorate the cookies before chocolate hardens.


Thank you pinterest and Better Homes and Gardens for this super cute winter cookie idea.  It may not be snowing outside but it's a winter wonderland in my kitchen. 

I even made white chocolate pretzels with the leftover melted chocolate and sprinkles.  (Planning to surprise the kids with these lunch box treats tomorrow.)

These were fun to make and even better to eat. A perfect activity for a cold winter day.  (Or a mild winter day depending on where you live.)
