Melting Snowmen Cookies

Last year I made melting snowmen cookies for my mom’s 3rd graders after I saw them on Somewhat Simple. They were HUGE hit with the kids and just as big a hit with the teachers! This year I made them again but this time for my office cookie exchange. Once again, a hit. These never fail to disappoint. Watch the video below or print out the recipe card.

Melting Snowmen Cookies: Revisisted
  • Cookies! Homemade or store bought
  • White Frosting (not Vanilla - it has a yellow tinge)
  • Pam/Cooking spray
  • Marshmallows
  • Icing (black and orange, and then whatever color you want for the scarves)
  • Ziploc baggies
  1. Heat frosting in microwaveable bowl at 15 second intervals until frosting is soupy.
  2. Puddle frosting on to cookies using a spoon, spread with back of spoon if needed.
  3. Spray microwaveable plate with Pam. Place marshmallow on plate, leaving space between each (room for expansion). Microwave until marshmallow puffs up slightly, but not too much.
  4. Immediately place marshmallow on frosting. Press down on marshmallow.
  5. If the frosting you have does not have a fine tip, squeeze in to a Ziploc baggies and cut a very small hole in the corner for a frosting tip.
  6. Add eyes, a note, buttons, arms and a scarf!

Recipe Notes:

For 2 dozen cookies, I used a tub and of half of white frosting, about one large tube black icing, and partial tubes of large orange and green tubes of frosting.
