It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for baking cookies! These warm treats seem to have so many uses during the winter months: from a small snack or dessert at home and a plate of fun for parties you attend to gifts for teachers and friends.
Whether you have an annual cookie exchange or not, I’m sure you have your favorite recipes. Here’s one to consider adding for some variety in your holiday cookie jar.
Melted Snowman Cookies
These melted snowman cookies are fun to make and everyone will love them! They are way easier than they look, too!
1 box Devil’s food cake mix
1 stick butter, softened
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon mint extract
1 package white melting chocolate (I used white chocolate chips)
10 miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, cut in half
Mini chocolate chips
Toothpick (to draw on the mouth)
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, butter, eggs, flour, and extract.
Use a cookie scoop to drop evenly sized potions of dough onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.
Once the cookies are cool, melt white chocolate chips. Drizzle a spoonful over each cookie to form the melted snow. Add a peanut butter cup half for the hat, and decorate the faces with chocolate chips and sprinkles. Dip your toothpick in chocolate to draw on the mouth in a smile.
That’s all there is to it! Enjoy making these and sharing them!
