Melted Snowman Cookies will be a favorite with all ages and take a few more minutes to make than your normal cookies.  The ingredients are bound to be in your kitchen, although you may need to buy a bag of marshmallows before you start.

Ask a friend over or share with your younger brother or sister the fun of decorating these basic sugar cookies.


  • Large marshmallows
  • White icing
  • Icing colors, orange, black, and any other colors of your choice
  • Decorative topping such as M&Ms and chocolate chips
  • Sugar cookie mix (and the ingredients the recipe requires)

 Step 1:  Preheat the oven according to the cookie mix directions.

Step 2: Begin following the cookie mix instruction, mixing all the ingredients in a bowl.

Step 3: Make sure the batter becomes a dough-like consistency.

Step 4: Prepare a greased cookie sheet.

Step 5: Use a scooper to collect dough for even-sized cookies and place them on the cookie sheet.

Step 6: Flatten the dough scoops.

Step 7: Place the cookies in the oven and let them cook according to the recipe.

Step 8: Take cookies out once they are golden and let them cool.

Step 9: Once cookies have cooled,  cover them with white icing.

Step 10: Place marshmallows on a plate and microwave for about 30 seconds.

Step 11: Take the warm marshmallows and place one on each iced cookie.

Step 12: Decorate the cookies, using orange for the nose, black for arms, and other topping for buttons or scarves.
