These Melted Snowmen Cookies are fun to ‘build’! Start with your favorite cookie as a base; homemade, slice and bake or store bought.

Fun for Christmas or winter months too, these Melted Snowmen Cookies are a tasty project for a cold January day!

Here's what you need:

  • Cookies (I used  Nigella’s Chocolate Shortbread Cookies  as a base, that as Nigella says, are a “doddle” to make :) but you can use the cookie of your choice.)
  • Vanilla flavored or white almond bark / candy coating (substitute white chocolate chips or candy melts if you prefer)
  • Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for snowman hats
  • Mini Chocolate Chips for eyes
  • Orange jimmie sprinkles for carrot noses

Here are the steps:


  • Follow the directions on the almond bark/candy coating package and microwave until coating is melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.
  • Spoon melted candy coating over each cookie to resemble melted snow.
  • While coating is wet, add a peanut butter cup half and sliver to create a hat and brim. 
  • Decorate the face with mini chocolates chips for eyes and an orange jimmie for a carrot nose.
  • Allow candy coating and snowman features to set, about 20 minutes.

There's a bit of a learning curve, cutting the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I had better luck cutting them with wrapper on from the wide end to prevent them from crumbling. After you cut them in half, cut a small sliver off the wide end to create a hat brim.

Instructions


Cut mini Reese’s Cups in half from the wide end and then cut a sliver off the halves of the wide end to make a hat brim; set aside.
Follow the directions on the almond bark/candy coating package for melting, microwaving until coating is melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.

Tips

  • I found through trial and error that mini Reese’s cup are easier to cut without crumbling if you leave the foil wrapper on and wide end up, using a serrated knife.
  • Alternatively use Reese’s Peanut Butter Bells for the hats for quicker assembly and less cutting.
  • I used Nigella’s Christmas Chocolate Cookies as a base for the snowmen.
