All you need for this recipe is a batch of baked sugar or shortbread cookies, some icing, food colors and large marshmallows. Any other decorations are up to you.
I cheated and used a container of store bought icing, it was sitting in the fridge anyway. I put about a quarter teaspoon into a ramekin and mixed it with red and yellow food colors for carrot noses, and then i put a dollop of red food gel on the other side of the ramekin and mixed in a bit of blue for eyes and buttons. When i was done with those colors, i mixed the two together and made a funky brown color, which i used arms and mouths. I used toothpicks for paintbrushes.
So basically all you need to do is ice the cookie, microwave the marshmallows 15 seconds (just enough to get a melted look), stick them to the icing, and decorate.
And then you have adorable melted snowman cookies. I am kinda glad i did not make a whole huge batch, it took me almost 20 minutes just to do these six! But, they are cute, and look delicious, and i am sure they will be gobbled up quickly!
Merry last two days before Christmas!!
