Cold weather is almost here, and it's a time for snowflakes, mittens, sleds, hot cocoa and of course, snowmen! This simple Iced Snowman Cookie recipe is easy to make and will be the highlight of any party or a delightful project to make with your child for an afternoon snack.
1. Frost cookies and set aside. They are easier to assemble after the frosting has set.
2. Unwrap the chewy chocolate candy or caramel. Place back in wrapper and put in microwave for 4-8 seconds, until soft, not melted. If it melts, it's easier to throw away and start over. Trust me!
3. Once softened, carefully stretch the candy into a scarf. Take a sharp knife and cut strips in the ends for the fringe. Let cool.
4. Unwrap another chewy chocolate candy. Place back in wrapper and put in microwave for 4-8 seconds, until soft, not melted.
5. Once softened, pinch off one end and shape into the brim of a hat. Mold the rest into a hat. Attach the brim to the bottom of the hat. Let cool.
6. Place a frosted cookie in the middle of the candy scarf. Wrap scarf around the cookie as shown. Put round sprinkles in place for the snowman's buttons.
7. Put the hat in place by tucking the ends of the brim to the sides of the cookie.
8. Put round sprinkles in place for the snowman's eyes.
Mix and match your scarf and hat colors for even more fun!! Frosty the Snowman would be an appropriate song to play while making and eating your fun Iced Snowman Cookies.
