When the holidays arrive, we get the itch to bake!  We always bake up lots of treats and hand them out around town….as a gift, as a token of appreciation, and as part of our RACK mission.  This year, we found these adorable Melting Snowmen Cookies!!
Here are a few of the Cooking with Kids Christmas projects we’ve done in the past :

This year, we’ve decided on baking these super fun and cute, Melting Snowmen. We know you’ll love them too!

Ingredients :


Directions :

  1. Cover cookies with white icing, allowing it to drop off the sides (creates melting effect).  Let icing dry 30-45 minutes.
  2. Use black icing and orange sprinkles to create faces on the marshmallows.  Get creative and give them character!
  3. Glue marshmallows to cookies with white icing.  Using black and colored icing, give the snowmen buttons, scarves, arms, and other embellishments.  Let dry at least two hours before transporting.
  4. Complete this melting snowmen craft while waiting for them to dry!
Pass your holiday spirit on!!!!!!!
